If you've got a lucky little one with a springtime birthday, you may be wondering how to make the most of the temperate season in the form of a birthday party this year.
Depending on where you're from, it may not be warm enough yet to have the party outside, but you can still gather inspiration from the outdoors by engaging kids with some nature crafts.
Bundle kids up at home and lead them on a short walk through your backyard. This type of scavenger hunt usually works best if you give kids a list, but tell them to get creative with the objects they find. Pine cones, branches, berries and pretty flowers may all be in abundance at this time of year.
Once you get inside, have a station set up with craft materials. Glue, scissors, paint and glitter are all essentials, but the sky's really the limit when it comes to these activities. Instruct kids how to decorate pine cones, or tell them to go wild with their own creations.
Of course, no craft party is complete without a goodie bag filled with birthday party favors. A "decorate your own princess tiara" party favor or "decorate your own train" party favor could be the perfect way to foster continued creativity.
