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!

Alessandra at A Sparkly Life for Me had a very original idea that lots of children will go “roaring” mad for!  Who says it HAS to be a bunny?  I say this idea is grrrreat!  Click the image to go to her post and see all her images and a list of items she used, so you can create your own unique pre-historic Easter!

Well, you may or may not want the kids helping with this one, but if you don’t, it will be one heck of a Mom Win when you pull them out!!!  These bunny butt cupcakes have got to be my favorite!  Lisa nailed it!  Click the image to go to her site and learn how to make them for your little Easter bunnies!

Hey folks!  It’s March and to me that means Spring is almost here!  I love Spring!  Everything starts getting greener, like the grass, tree buds, Leprechaun hats, and beer, to name a few!  LOL  Well, I can’t promise everything will be green, but I’m celebrating today with a fun March Madness Recipe Roundup!  I also decided to make this a Link Party or Blog Hop, so please add your March recipes below!  And don’t forget to comment after you do!

The first recipe I’d like to share is How to Make Rainbow Cupcakes by The Jersey Momma!  She gives step-by-step directions with photos of the whole process!  They are fairly easy to make, although, a little time consuming.  And they have her son’s Stamp of Approval!

The next recipe sounds sooo yummy!  It is Chocolate Mint Cream Cheese Buttons by Mom on Timeout!  They are a cream cheese mint filled with chocolate ganache.  Yum!  And this little ole recipe makes 6 dozen candies!  Enough to please any crowd!

You can’t get through the month of March without a Shamrock Shake!  Or maybe I should say a Shamrock Fake?  LOL  Why drive through McDonalds when you can make a shake just as delish, if not more so??  I know!  Crazy right?  That’s why I love this Homemade Shamrock Shake recipe by Ashley over at Wishes and Dishes!  Can’t get enough of these things!

What’s your favorite March recipe?  Share it in the link up, or in the comments!


 May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
