Preschool Spring and Summer Crafts



Help your preschoolers celebrate the arrival of spring and summer with preschool spring and summer crafts! Birds, caterpillars and bumblebees just to name a few! Earth's little creatures are becoming active now that winter is through!

Pom Pom Caterpillar

Make a green leaf cut-out from construction paper and then use a fancy edged scissors to cut a bite shape from the leaf. Draw a line on the leaf and then squeeze glue on the line. Place a row of colorful pom poms on the glue to resemble a caterpillar. Glue wiggly eyes and construction paper antennas to the caterpillar.

Flower Garden

Brush brown tempera paint or similar kids craft paint on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of green construction paper. Drag a toy rake or hair pick over the wet paint to make lines that resemble rows in a garden. After the paint is dry, crumple up squares of colored tissue paper and glue them to the garden to resemble flowers.



Footprints Butterfly

Have your child step into a shallow pan of tempera paint with their bare foot and then press the footprint onto a sheet of colored construction paper. Repeat with the other foot. When the footprints are dry, cut loosely around them. These will be the butterly's wings. Cut out a butterfly's body from construction paper and glue it between the two footprints. Draw on a butterfly face and add construction paper or pipe cleaner antennas.

Tissue Paper Rainbow

To make a rainbow, take a small plate or bowl and trace around half of it to make the different arcs of the rainbow. Fill in the arcs with glue and add small crumpled up balls of colored tissue paper to make the colors of the rainbow. Glue on a couple of cotton balls, one on each end of the rainbow for clouds.
