We are so so excited to announce the third issue of our magazine – Finding Spring! As with previous issues, this one is available digitally, in print, and as a craft kit – with all the supplies you will need to craft, connect and find spring with your little one!
As you craft your way through Finding Spring you will make a nature journal, create art with fruits and vegetables, enjoy some digging and planting pretend play, build a nest and make some eggs, beautify your yard or neighborhood with seed tossers, cook up delicious mini-quiches and sew a creative apron (or two).
Better yet, as you flip through the pages of the magazine, you will be inspired. Not only by the projects, but by the beautiful seasonal photographs, gorgeous poetry, important questions and suggested book lists we’ve included. All there, to make it easy for you to connect – with the season and with your little one.
Still not sure? Take a Peek Inside our magazine. That’ll give you just a taste . . .

Just as a recap, each issue of Crafting Connections is created with both grown-ups and little ones, toddlers through kindergartners, in mind. The instructions that accompany the projects are designed for adults to read and process. However, the imagery throughout is specifically included to engage the little ones. We want you to share the publication and projects together, using it as a starting point to get inspired and excited about the season and all that it has to offer.
In addition to the projects, you will find a suggested book list, designed to help children connect what they are crafting and creating to literature, to other projects within the issue, and to the natural world around them. Each issue also includes a book list, full-size photo pages with thoughtful and provoking questions, and poetry. Each project includes “Explore More” and “Make Connections” sections to help you build and expand upon every project – what fun!
As a magazine subscriber and an online reader, we hope that you will engage and connect with us and other members of the Crafting Connections community. Whether it is here, or over on our Facebook page, we hope that we can see what you do, see where the projects take you!
