I think I say it in every post lately, but I am so glad that Spring is here. Its always so refreshing. Its also my very favorite time of year for my front yard where we have the most gorgeous tree in the Spring, its a crab apple tree.
We’ve made a cute apple tree craft in the past. It was so easy and lovely to display. We needed to make a version of this for spring! A cute Spring tree craft for toddlers to make!
Its super easy and doesn’t matter at all how it turns out.
Now, remember my tips for crafting with toddlers that I mentioned in the Easter crafts for toddlers? Those apply here too of course!
I started out the Spring trees by cutting a tree trunk and branches from a dark brown paper. If you child has cutting skills, this would be great practice for them if they’re up for it.
George and Louis then glued the trunks onto a piece of white paper.
Then it was completely a free for all!
I brought out pink construction paper, pink tissue paper and pink yarn for the boys to rip and cut into small pieces.
Louis doesn’t have great cutting skills yet, he’s still learning how to hold it properly.
He got a kick out of using Henry’s ‘special’ fancy scissors (affiliate link if you’re interested in the set he has).
They glued them on as the blossoms of the crab apple tree (or these would make beautiful cherry blossoms).
Balling up the tissue paper makes it looks like bright little blossoms that creates nice texture. Along with the yarn, it gives the whole tree some fun attributes.
However they wanted! As much or as little.
It was great gluing practice for both of the kids and Louis got to try out his scissors skills.
We topped off this Spring tree craft with some pink glitter to make it sparkle.
I love the multi-colored glitter container I have, the glitter doesn’t seem to pour out like other containers I’ve gotten.
They both turned out awesome. It’ll be a pretty addition to the house this Spring!
