Because my girls LOVE butterflies, we started there. I cut out these using felt, scrapbook paper, thread, googly eyes, and a hot glue gun.
In the meantime, I kept Brooklyn's hands busy making this butterfly frame. She was able to do it almost entirely on her own and LOVED feeling like she was a part of everything.
Then, this last weekend during General Conference, we decided to take it a little further. On day one I made this Mod Podge frame with some subway art I printed off from eighteen25.
That same day, Brooklyn and I made a bright felt sun and some sparkly felt rain clouds to hang in our window:
On day two of General Conference, we decided to jazz up the window a little more by painting it in the same manner as Amy Thompson from the Progressive Pioneer. My sister-in-law sent me the link and I LOVE how fun and easy it was and how cute it looks!
Now whenever its too cold to go outside, or when its rainy and gloomy, I just look at my beautiful homemade Spring and smile. My girls think its wonderful too and are VERY proud of their handiwork. So if the lingering winter has got you down, take charge of the situation and create your OWN Spring!
