Spring Time Fun with the Kids-More at MadeByMeggsDOTcom

I get just as excited as the next guy, when the weather finally starts to warm up. Seriously, its in my DNA, I am from Buffalo, New York – once those snow piles turn to mush we all dance in the streets! (Have you seen our St. Patrick’s Day parade celebrations?) Anyway, this week has been warm & along with letting the kids RUN for the first time in months – I started finding some fun spring time crafts for us to do.

I know for a lot of the school-aged kids, spring break is right around the corner. There are so many great ideas out there to keep the kids busy. But I know most parents don’t have the time to sift through all of Pinterest! So I did it for you! Below, I gathered a few of my favorite ideas. Activities, snacks, egg decorating, & basket ideas. Check them out, and if you want to see more click over to my “get ready for SPRING” board on Pinterest.

We are a huge fan of popcorn. A new snack the girls really love, and I am guessing adding in all the colorful bits will make them love it more!
