Spring has Sprung!
Happy spring, Slumber Bees! Sasha here, with a springtime blog post that I am so excited to be writing! The weather is finally nice, the patio furniture has come out of storage and we at Slumber Bee Parties are gearing up for some exciting additions, bookings and lots of fun! I decided in honor of the change of seasons I'd put together a little collection of all things fun for this time of year. I spend oodles of time researching and gathering fun crafts, foods, entertaining ideas and tidbits, so I want to share with you in the hive!
Below check out, by category, all sorts of fun ideas to check out to celebrate all things spring! All projects are links.. so click around and decide what you will make!
Do you and your littles like to get outside? We do too! I have collected my favorite ideas for what to do after the nature walk... Here are some fun ways to appreciate nature in all her glory encompassing all ages and abilities!
Make your own nature paintbrushes
Signs of spring nature walk (with free printables)
Garden theme learning (great for tots!)
Sensory nature cutting tray (Tot friendly!)
Nature scavenger hunt crafts (fab list !)
I don't know about you but we are always looking for fun cute new activities in this house. I have collected my faves here for you to try!
Salt sough nests -I LOVE a themed dough tray, and this one is BEYOND cute!
Backpack charms- make your own - I cannot even with the cuteness. Not necessarily spring themed, but OMG. In love!
Magical pom pom wands - All the magical springtime fairy feels
Glitter tube bracelets - ALL THE GLITTER
Raindrop suncatchers -Because even rainy days can be fun!
Butterfly hatching kit - OK so this isn't a craft but my kiddos and I LOVED watching the caterpillars make cocoons and hatch, then set the butterflies free. Weeks of fun and worth every penny!
Felt ball coasters - These are so colorful and fun to make! I made these as part of a birthday gift. Any kiddo old enough to use a glue gun can help out!
Growing up we had a big loud family get together for Seder every year. Cousin Jesse spilled wine, adults yelled over each other to be heard, there was lots of music and lots of love. I'll never forget the plastic bugs my grandmother Holly put all over the place one year as part of the plagues. You don't have to have a big loud family get together to enjoy these Passover crafts, food and fun!
Passover craft collection- Guys.. Legos, origami, Elijahs cup.. its all here and its all fun!!
Edible 10 plagues- Never have the plagues been so cute... or tasty.
Passover printables- Coloring, decor, games.. and all printable!
Chocolate Toffee Matzo Crack- Aptly named, this stuff wont last long in your house. Truthfully I was just looking for something that came close to the stuff my aunt Nancy made every single year. YUMMMM
Braised brisket- If you like meat, you NEED to try this, My aunt Shubbs makes the world's best tzimmes. This is fact. I am posting what I hope would even remotely do hers justice. Just add sweet potato (LOTS).
Charoset- If you've never eaten it, you must. I could eat my weight in this concoction of apples, nuts, spices and wine. Seriously, it's ALMOST worth the lack of bread.
It's almost that time... egg hunts and decorating, baskets filled with goodies, bunnies, floppy ears, pastel colors. There's so much to love! I have found lots of cute ways to enjoy the holiday and have shared the projects and food with you :).

I am obsessed with the style of these baskets I found on: stephaniehanna.com. They are the inspiration for the baskets I am currently putting together for Ollie and Amelia. I love a dual purpose basket.. these can totes be used for decor and storage post holiday. And look at how pretty! I even found some mini chalk boards at the Target dollar section... win! Once they are fully assembled I'll be sharing with the hive!
