Spring is in the air...and I am LOVING it!!
It is so wonderful to look out my window and see the sun shining and hear the birds chirping away, spring is definitely on its way.
I was feeling crafty, but since I couldn't go to the store to get supplies I was inspired by things I had on hand. Not too long ago I got some really adorable spring washi tape from my most favorite Pick Your Plum. I also received a pack of Jumbo Popsicle Sticks from the wonderful people at CraftProjectIdeas.com.
Put these two together and I created our Spring Has Sprung Activity Jar!
First up I got out my Jumbo Popsicle Sticks. These are a must-have for my craft stash...there is always something fun you can create with them.
I covered each stick in a strip of cute, springy washi tape.
Then on the back of each stick I wrote a fun spring-time activity my kids would enjoy. Well, honestly they may not be thrilled about ALL of them...I did include a couple of spring cleaning chores too ;)
Then I simply put them all in a mason jar, set them on my counter, and enjoyed the little pop of SPRING!
But...I can never leave anything alone the way it is. I remembered I had these mini-chalkboard clips in my stash and thought they would add the perfect finishing touch.
Activity Jars like this are a HUGE hit at our house! Instead of turning on the TV or computer when your kids are bored, you let them pick a stick out of the activity jar. They are excited to see what they get, and you get to spend some quality time with your littles...a definite win-win!!
