5 Fun Winter Crafts for Kids
Popsicle Stick Snowflakes
Glue popsicle sticks together in a snowflake “star” shape. Cover them with glue, then sprinkle on glitter, and let dry.
Winter “Snow” Globe
Take an empty baby food jar and fill it with baby oil. Sprinkle in a lot of glitter and stir. Glue a winter-themed figurine to the inside of the jar lid, then screw the lid on tightly. Shake the jar to watch the “snow” fall!
“Snow” Play Dough
Make your own play dough by mixing flour and baby oil together! Add a little oil of peppermint to make it smell wonderful!
Paper snowflakes are a childhood classic! Simply fold a piece of white paper in half lengthwise. Then make your own snowflake designs by cutting shapes into the fold. (Make sure not to cut along the entire fold!) Open up the folded paper to see your snowflake! You can even hang your completed snowflakes on the wall for a little winter decoration.
Cotton Ball Igloos
Learn about igloos by building your own! Kids can take cotton balls and dip them in glue. Then they can place them on construction paper in circular towers to form igloos! Let the cotton balls dry and decorate them if desired.
