If this winter is anything like last year’s, we could have several snow days. What’s good news for your kids is daunting for you, since they’ll be running around the house instead of giving you some peace and quiet at school. But you can help channel your kids’ energy into fun, productive projects with these simple winter crafts.
1. Build a Snowman
Obviously! But seriously, building a snowman is no more difficult than rolling piles of snow into balls, stacking them on top of each other, and shoving a carrot and some buttons where applicable. Actually, that’s all there really is to it!
2. Make a Gingerbread House
You can’t eat a snowman (well, you’re not supposed to), but you can eat a gingerbread house! While making a gingerbread house from scratch may be cheaper and more fulfilling than using a box, you have to remember that young kids probably don’t have the skill or attention span required for such a project. Grab a gingerbread kit from a website such as Wilton Products and get ready for an engaging experience for the whole family.
3. Coffee Filter Snowflakes
Just because there’s snow outside doesn’t mean there can’t be snow(flakes) inside too! You and your kids can make your own flakes out of coffee filters Simply grab a few coffee filters, let your kids draw circles and other shapes in pencil, fold them in half, and use scissors to cut out the patterns along the fold.
