These are some colorful, fun and bright spring art projects for kids!

I am so in the mood for Spring and completely over winter. Even if all the winter crafts are adorably cute.

I need some green and brightness around me!

We have recently moved my office to its own room, and styling it has been fun. I haven’t decorated in years it seems like. Since winter is still in the air here and we all have the sniffles, I was happy to find, our sponsor, Kleenex has very cool new designs in every color and style!

21 creative and colorful Spring art projects for kids to make!

One thing I wanted to make sure I put in the room is a place to display the kids art projects. I had been saving this old picture frame for the longest time and it was time to use it. I spray painted it a soft yellow to go with the room (I did blues with a yellow accent).

I turned the frame into a place to display the kids’ art projects, and what better way to get in the mood for Spring than to fill it up with wonderful Spring art projects that the kids make?

Now to really fill that frame with some oh-so-colorful Spring art projects from the kids!
