10 Spring Animal Crafts for Kids

Keep your kids busy with these fun and adorable spring animal crafts.

For many kids, winter means being cooped up inside for months. So spring is all about getting back outside, and spending more time outdoors enjoying nature.

Spring is also a great time to get creative with animal crafts. Unfortunately we don’t get to see many outdoor animals where we live. But these spring animal crafts for kids can bring the animals into the house any time you’d like.

Here are a few fun and easy craft ideas for your kiddos to try.
