It’s all about crafts that are easy and that have the potential to be beautiful but also have the ability to keep your 5 year-old amused.
These baskets are a great Tu B’Shvat or Shavuot centerpiece. Vibrant and colorful, this craft can easily be adapted for younger and older kids.
My kids LOVE making paper chains for our Sukkah. This chain is also great for Tu B’Shvat.
Passover is known as the Springtime Holiday. Celebrate the spring season with these foam flowers.
This messy project blossoms into a beautiful tree!
Too cold to plant a tree outside? This tree can be the centerpiece at your Tu B’Shvat party. Most materials can be found at your local craft shop (and, of course, a quick stop at your local candy store!)

True confession time: when my kids bound in the door with little plants in little planters, I groan. I know in a week or two it will be a wilted weed that we will continue to tend to until I can quietly throw it out. Enter the Grass Head Salon. This is my absolute favorite indoor/outdoor craft. Plant grass in a small planter or bucket and when it grows long enough, have your kids develop their fine motor skills as they give their grass heads a haircut.
