Forced plum blossoms and collection of spring crafts and books for kids

Blossoms of the Week: I’m so proud of myself for actually forcing some spring blossoms this year! I’ve tried in the past but without success. I guess the timing was just right for these plum blossoms. They lasted about 10 days, but a very happy 10 days it was.

Even if you don’t have a chance to force real blossoms, here are my picks for lovely kids spring blossom crafts. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, not only are you awesome, but you know I wouldn’t send you off to do any crafts that are too challenging.

  1. Wow, a new look! Looks great!

  2. I love those flowers. They make me feel happy :) I wish I could ‘grow’ these too :) Lovely ideas, will definitely trying them here. Pinning this.

  3. Thank you so much for the mention Miss Erica! I realized that I can’t part with the tree, even though Easter is about to be in our rear window. I think it must stay up through mid-April, at least. :) Happy Easter to you!!

  4. Your new template looks terrific!

  5. I am so impressed that you were able to force those blooms!

  6. We don’t need to force blooms seeing how they never really leave us – something is flowering in our garden all year long :) Love the new look, by the way!
