Crafty Days In April

Have some fun with these crafty days in April! There are so many great days that you can make crafts to celebrate! These days aren’t specifically about crafts rather the important and fun celebrated days of April that can be used for crafting inspiration. We love days that are dedicated to special holidays and events that we can make crafts and fun activities for. Some of the other days that we are really looking forward to include, Easter and Earth Day.

Making crafts with children gives the opportunity to talk about the special day, and adults to reflect on why the day is important. Or maybe it is just a day for celebrating something fun either way we don’t really need much of an excuse to have some crafty fun!
