So, it’s slowly feeling more and more like Spring!  We’ve had more snow, and then rain, and the days are starting to warm up a bit.  FINALLY!!!  And the more I’m feeling Spring, the more I crave some things that just scream SPRING!!!

Everyone is different, so they all have different things that make them feel a certain way.  Here are a few things from the interwebs that really help me get my season on!

13 Brilliant Things you can do with a Glass Jar

Now I can FINALLY use up some of the old Mason jars my sister gave me when she moved!  Quart jar crafts are becoming so popular these days.  Back in the 90s, my Mom made several votive candles out of jars.  She painted scenes and flowers on them.  I still have mine displayed in a prominent spot!  She was really ahead of her time, huh?  LOL  Have you made any of them?  Feel free to leave a link to your jar project in the comments!

Dr. Seuss for President!

Yes!  I wish Dr. Seuss could come back and be President!  Oh, the places we’d go!

Ever since I was very little, one of my very favorite authors has been Dr. Seuss!  Yes, even as an adult!  Not only was he whimsical and imaginative, but he was very smart and a good person.  He lived through racism, commercialism, and all sorts of other “isms”, and saw the damage that they could do.  In his art and books, he tried to teach children (although, many adults could take a lesson) tolerance and care for people and this world we live in.  I truly believe that the world would be a much better place if people read his books and tried to think like him every day!

So, now, I’d like to share a few of my favorite videos of his stories!  This first one isn’t a book, though.  It’s a biography made for kids in a style befitting Dr. Seuss himself!  I hope you enjoy these.  Please let me know what YOUR favorite is in the comments!

In Search of Dr. Seuss

The Cat in the Hat

Green Eggs and Ham AND Sneetches

Springtime Fun for Kids Roundup

 

I just love when Spring arrives!  Everything starts to turn green, the temperature gets warmer, and there is a freshness in the air!  And, like many of you, my fingers itch to get crafting for Easter and Spring decor.

Today, though, I’m going to put together some fun crafts and ideas for the kids!  They will help get their little spirits in the Springtime mood, and make a fun afternoon for you to spend together!  I look forward to doing some of these with my own grandkids!
