All across the country spring break season is upon us. You may have started your break this week and if not, it is right around the corner. Many families are planning trips and vacations, but just as many (if not more) are staying close to home for their spring breaks with maybe a few day trips or activities planned. What that means is disrupted schedules, down time, and bored kids aka the recipe for disaster! Fear not because I have 10 spring inspired DIY paper crafting projects that are fun for kids of all ages.
You can’t go wrong with paint and butterflies! This canvas embellished with butterflies punched from hand-painted paper is pretty enough to give as a gift or hang in your home.
How cute is this sweet little purse made from a paper plate?! Use your imagination and see what other animals you can create, my daughter votes for a panda purse!
Keep cool on spring break with these colorful layered fans created from scrapbook paper and your child’s artwork.
What are your spring break crafting plans?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
