I love tulips! They are such a beautiful representation of spring. We spent some time in Chicago last year and it was nice seeing tulips around the city. If you’re looking for an easy craft to make with your kids, I have the perfect project. This beautiful scrape painting tulip is a great activity to celebrate spring. Kids will have a fun time using this cool painting technique.
