Three Crafts Ideas for Kids this Spring
Spring break means lots of beautiful flowers and animals coming out
to embrace the sun. Parents also see this opportunity to help their
kids bloom with new skills and discover talents. This includes letting
them enjoy doing fun arts and crafts along with other kids. Here is a
list of after school activities for kids in Dubai to give you an idea on
what to let your kids create this spring.

grass people. Get a Styrofoam cup or a small pot where your kids can

should be covered with small rocks or pebbles. Cover the top using
potting soil to fill the cup. Push the grass seeds gently into the soil
and cover the top with another layer of potting soil. Place it in a
window sill to allow enough sunlight to enter. The face of the cup will
eventually have hair once the grass grows.
