This Friday marks the first day of spring. We at ECHO are very excited to welcome warmer weather, the return of some of our favorite critters, and of course MUD!

While we get ready for spring's arrival and MudFest’s kickoff on April 11, we have scoured the internet for a few spring-minded crafts to try using materials you probably already have at home.

Bring on the color

These coffee filter flowers offer a great way to use the tons of filters we all have lying around.

Make them stand out with watercolors or food coloring.

Not a coffee drinker? Try this craft, made with the pages of an old magazine.

A snack that’s for the birds

Enjoy a tasty orange and give your feathered friends a treat with this DIY bird feeder.

Scoop out the fruit for you then use twine to create a hanging bowl for the birds. Fill it will seed, string from a tree and voila – a simple and eco-friendly feeder.

April showers bring May flowers            

We’re not quite there yet, but soon enough it will be time to grab an umbrella and splash around in puddles!

Teach your kids how to create their own rain clouds with this fun experiment, then be sure to bring them in to ECHO to check out our Action Lab exhibit, Shaping Watersheds: Augmented Reality Sandbox!

Sugaring season is here

With the sweet smell in the air, the steam rising from boiling sap, we know that maple sugaring time has returned.

This graded maple syrup playdough helps get even the youngest of sugar makers involved.
