Spring Critters

 I love spring crafts because we get to create adorable little bunnies and chicks. There is not much sweeter than that! The kids love creating these little "pets" too. They usually end up with names and little homes made from Amazon boxes (yes, I am a little bit addicted to Amazon, it could be worse, right?)
This so-darn-cute cotton bunny started with a toilet paper roll. Check out the full details here, Cotton Bunny.
 I love when I sit down with Emma to make a sweet little chick and she chooses the hot pink pom-pom for hers. Her colorful spirit is inspiring! Here is how it all came together, Spring Chick in a Basket.
 You can never have too many chicks...or can you? This is Jill and Henry (named by Emma) and here is how you make your own Jill and Henry, Pipe Cleaner Chicks.
 Today the chicken came before the egg, but we can't have a spring crafting post without the nest and eggs. You will not believe how easy the Paper Bag Nest and Tissue Paper Eggs are to make!! Click the titles to see.
Happy Spring!
