As a mom of three and a former Kindergarten ECE, I’ve learned that going on a “treasure hunt” and finding your materials for nature activities is half the fun. These spring crafts for kids will keep them busy and teach them to appreciate nature—plus, they don’t cost a lot of money. In fact, you probably already have everything you need in your home, in your backyard, or laying around in your local park, if you can safely take a socially-distanced hike or neighbourhood stroll where you live. (Keep two metres apart from passersby who aren’t part of your family.) Enjoying some fresh air and soaking up the sunshine is an instant mood-booster for kids and cooped-up grown-ups, too.
