What you’ll need:

  • Decorative Paper
  • Cotton Balls
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Hole Puncher
  • Glue stick

Are you looking to get the kids involved? Then this is the activity for you! Give the kids some control and let them pick out their favorite paper color and designs! Draw your outline on the paper and start cutting. Once your bunnies are cut out, add a cotton ball tail as the final touch! Next, simply punch a hole at the top of the bunny and run string through it.

4. Rainbow Flower Vases

What you’ll need:

  • Clear glass vases
  • Water
  • Food coloring (both gel or liquid)
  • Flowers

The beauty lies in the simplicity when it comes to this spring look. Instead of coloring the vases themselves, we’re going to color the water! You control how bold or light the color is in each vase, creating a color scheme that is uniquely you!

5. Pebble Flower Vase

What you’ll need:

  • Pebbles
  • Pringles can
  • Glue (spray on preferably)

This do-it-yourself venture is one part recycling and one part playing with rocks. The result: a rustic masterpiece. First, find a Pringles can. (A full can is best, since you can pour them out and snack on them as you work!) Then, go to your local garden center and purchase a small bag of pebbles. Next, head to the hardware store and grab a can of Rust-Oleum Leak Seal. Spray the can with the leak seal and then place your pebbles! Allow a few hours for the can to dry and then enjoy!
