Springtime Hyacinth Craft for You and Your Kids

Springtime Hyacinth Craft for You and Your Kids

Crafting is one of our favorite parts of the week. It’s such a refreshing pause in the midst of a crazy week. Plus, who doesn’t like to stretch their creativity and get a little messy thanks to craft time?

This week, in preparation for the first day of spring – March 20th – my daughter and I whipped up a pretty white hyacinth craft with paper and paint.

Join in the springtime fun and make your own! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Blue craft paper to represent the sky
  • Craft paint, you can choose from white, peach, yellow, pink, red, purple, or blue because  hyacinth come on all those color varieties!
  • Green craft paper for the stem and leaves
  • Glue stick
  • Bottle cap or other circle object
  • Paper plate
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Black Marker

Assembly instructions:

Have your child trace a stem and leaves with their pencil. Then, cut it out and glue to the blue paper. You can choose a single stem, a trio, or a whole garden if you like!

Squirt paint onto the paper plate and with your bottle cap create hyacinth “petals”. Show your children a photo of a real hyacinth so they can see how the blooms climb the stem in a full, oblong shape.

Allow to completely dry and add “Welcome Spring” or any other seasonal well wishes you like!

Here’s a peek at mama’s version, my kindergartener’s, and little brother’s stick and rock collection from exploring in the nice weather! Truly, WELCOME SPRING!, we’re so happy you’re here!
