Spring's the Thing!!!

It's here!!!! It's SPRING-time!!!!! 
The season of new beginnings!!!!!
(For my readers sharing my hemisphere, that is... I'm so ego-centric: LOL!)

I'm creating this blog post to inspire and share.
In my travels as a "Music-Lady" making 'author/illustrator' visits to schools, centers and libraries -- I get to see all manner of amazing work in my adventures.

Spring children's artwork, scissor snipping art, flower, preschool, early childhood art, spring bulletin board

Look at this bulletin board idea!
I could have had that in one of my round-ups for all things 'fine motor leading to Fine Arts!!'
What a great way to encourage scissor activity for young hands!!

preschool art, clay bird, early childhood, spring projects for children

There you have it!
My version of the Birds and the Bees......

This bouquet was professionally framed and under glass, hanging in the program director's office...... obviously a gift of love from an earlier spring. What a great idea for a mother's day present. Or a gift for GeeGee, Nana, Mimi, Grandma, Grannie et. al. Hint-hint.

Rembrandt in the making.
Spring = smiles!
Spring = butterfly!!
Spring = Happy flower!!!

I had posted this footprint sun collaboration earlier, but felt it was needed in this collection.
Truly a classic and oh-so-simple. Simple always 'works.' Simple is great in the spring!!!

That's a pretty amazing continum of response.

I'd be so delighted if you'd 'pin' your favorite spring idea.
That will help bring these projects to a wider audience searching for inspiration.

Thanks for your help!!!

I have another installment of ideas here in a future issue.
