Fun Winter Crafts For Kids & Toddlers
Art crafts are the easiest way to keep our kids and toddlers busy and happy during the winter when the weather is just too harsh to enjoy winter outdoor activities. The great thing about art crafts is that they take very little preparation, and they wake up so much in our kids; imagination, creativity, self-expression, and confidence.

If you need some help, here are a few fun winter crafts for kids and toddlers to enjoy at home. You won’t need much, so let’s get started!

Winter Hats

Winter hats are super quick and straightforward to make! They’re also incredibly cute, and your children will love doing this. All you need to do is either print or draw the shape of simple winter hats and then allowing your children to color them or decorate them with materials such as cotton balls, tissue paper, glitter, etc.! It’s that simple.

Because this is so quick to make, the best thing you can do is print several copies of the winter hat because you’ll be needing them. Just hand your children a bunch of crayons, markers, colored pencils, watercolors, etc., white glue, cotton balls, tissue paper, etc., and glitter. Just let them do whatever they want with their hats, and you’ll be amazed by the results. When they’re done, help them cut out their winter hats so they can show them off!

Snowflake Ornament

DIY ornaments are always fun to make in preparation for Christmas, and it’s a great way to enjoy the mandatory indoor time due to harsh weather. Your children will love making this, and all you need is craft sticks, buttons, string, and glue. Your craft sticks can be natural or precolored, but if you go with the natural ones, you’ll want to color them with the help of your kids and let them dry.

Once you do that, lay the sticks down, make a star with them and glue them together. Then you can start fixing the buttons onto the sticks; place a big one in the center and then work from there. When that’s done, cut a piece of string and glue it to the back of the craft stick so you can hang them.

Cotton Ball Snowman

Making these cotton ball snowmen is a great way to spend time indoors, and it’s super simple. You’ll only need cotton balls, blue construction paper for the background, white paper, glue, scissors and decorations such as craft foam, buttons, popsicle sticks, pom poms, sequins, scraps of fabric, etc.

To get started, draw the shape of the snowman on white paper and cut it out. Apply glue and then allow your children to fill the snowman with cotton balls and let it dry. Once it’s done, your children can start decorating their snowmen however they want. When they’re ready, glue the snowman onto the blue construction paper, and you’re done!

Any of these crafts will prove to be a lot of fun when the winter days get harsh, and you’re stuck inside!
