The following is a post from contributing writer Jamie.
This year, I’m a little late in getting my veggies planted, but we’ve been working in our flower gardens, as well as watching fuzzy baby peaches grow — and hoping to keep those pesky bugs off them this year! Soon, I’ll let the kids help plant sunflower seeds and such, so this is the perfect time to do a few fun garden crafts with kids!
Make one or several to commemorate a special day, or even to use as stepping stones.
Daffodil Head Boppers at Sun Hats and Wellie Boots.
How cute is this!? A craft kids can make and wear — maybe while planting real flowers. 😉
Woodland People at Red Ted Art.
Start with a fun little scavenger hunt in your yard or park, then come home and make these using leaves and other bits of nature.
Fingerprint Flowers and Bugs at Preschool Playbook.
You could try painting these on a small terra cotta flower pot, too!
Tin Can Flowers at Think Crafts.
Liven up any garden with this recycled craft! You’ll have to do the cutting part of this craft for safety reasons, but the kids can do the painting.
Giant Sunflower at No Time for Flash Cards.
A cheery craft to make any day.
Seed Packets at Mini Gardeners.
Make your own seed packets; these would make lovely party favors, too.
Flower-Pot Birdbath at The Princess and the Frog Blog.
A house down the road from me has one of these in their front yard and I adore it, so this is definitely on my To-Make list!
