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!
