5 Latino-Inspired Spring Crafts for Kids

 5 Latino-Inspired Spring Crafts for Kids With spring just days away I couldn’t wait to search for spring crafts for kids. Crafts are not only great for learning and decorating, they also help keep traditions in our culture alive. I realized that I wanted more than just any spring kid friendly craft. I wanted to find Latino-inspired crafts that my kids could create, learn with and help keep our heritage alive.

I love  creating things with my kids. It allows us to bond over so many of our favorite things.  It’s also very magical to see their interpretation and creativity. With festivities such as Easter, Dia de los Niños ( Day of the Children), and Mother’s day in spring , I thought I’d share some crafts we’ve created as a family in the past as well as new ones we can’t wait to create!

    This cute easy to do garland reminds me of the flowers and hair pieces worn in many of our cultures. It especially reminds me of the embroidery in Mexican floral dresses.
