Isn't the end result beautiful!

The talented and creative Elena also shared this ballerina craft with us that she made using flower petals. What a great idea!

Create a Flower Themed Play Area

Jes went all out with her amazing flower themed play area (she changes here themes often). Doesn't this look amazing! For anyone wondering this is the playstand that she used

Candice also created a wonderfully inviting play room for her toddler - she used pinwheel flowers (you can get similar HERE on Amazon) to create this beautiful space.

Rock Painting - Outdoor Spring Toddler Activity

Alicia shared this fun spring toddler activity - painting rocks! She had a large rock in her yard and used paints to decorate it.

You could use water paints which would wash off over time (and be less messy for your child) or acrylic paints if you wanted the paint to stay on.

Make a Spring Toddler Garden

Gardening is a great toddler spring activity idea. I LOVE how Ryan used an old broken water table to set up a fun toddler garden. Watering this would be a fun daily toddler activity too.
