I think Spring is possibly the most anticipated season of the year? There’s always an excitement when you spot the first daffodils or spring lambs and these spring crafts for toddlers are a great way to share that excitement with younger kids! We love sharing crafts for toddlers and have shared so many on our site that parents have loved creating with their kids and enjoying some special time together, I hope you’ll enjoy these easy and fun ideas just as much.

In this round up you’ll find loads of spring craft ideas for one, two and three year olds. Obviously there can be a lot of difference between what a child who has just turned one and a child who has just turned three can do (and a lot of difference between kids the same age!) so take a look through the list and find the ideas that you think your child will enjoy the most, after all no one knows your child like you do!
As well as the spring crafts I’m sharing today you’ll also find some ideas for spring themed stories to share with your child and at the end of the post you’ll find some more of our most popular crafts for toddlers to try another day.

As well as the crafts listed below you might also enjoy using our free tree template to make some spring tree crafts – we’ve shared four easy ideas but I’m sure you and your kids will come up with loads more ways to create spring trees too!
All the spring crafts for toddlers that I’m sharing today are listed in the same order that they’re shown in the collages below to make it a bit easier for you to find the tutorials for the ones you fancy the most. There are more ideas than you’ll just see in the images so do take a moment to read through them all and find yourself some new ideas to try out this year.

Spring Books for Toddlers
We love sharing books together and it’s a great way to wind down after a busy arts and crafts session. My kids have always loved books on a theme and we’ve always used one of these bookcases to make it easier for them to find the ones they’d like to read. These spring themed books all look great fun and perfect for toddlers – which would your toddler choose to share with you?
