If you’ve run out of ideas for fun crafts and activities, look no further! These are a great way to engage in some hands-on fun for both you and your little one! With each craft providing an opportunity to improve sensory skills, they have educational and developmental benefits as well.
1. Painted Polar Bear
-Blue, Black, and White Construction Paper
- Dip your plastic fork in the white paint and dab onto the blue construction paper in the shape of a polar bear’s face.
- Using the black and white construction paper, as well as the scissors, safely cut out two eyes and two ears.
- Once the paint has dried, glue the eyes and ears onto the face to create your very own adorable polar bear!
2. Winter Tree Art
-Light Blue Construction Paper
- After finding small twigs from outside, lay them on the construction paper in the shape of a mini tree (you may need to break the twigs into smaller pieces).
- Once you’ve arranged them in a shape that you like, glue them onto the paper and let dry.
- Taking your Q-tip, dip it into the white paint and add “snowflakes” around the tree (or however you’d like your wintry scene to look!).
3. Snowy Sweet Name
-Dark Construction Paper
- On your construction paper, draw the first letter of your name with the glue.
- Before it dries, “trace” over the glue with the mini marshmallows.
- Make sure that you spell your name with these snowy sweet treats letter by letter so that the glue doesn’t dry prematurely!
4. Melted Snowman In A Jar
-Small Black Buttons
-Small Piece of Fabric
- Fill your mason jar halfway with liquid glycerin and sprinkle in some glitter.
- Next, drop in your black buttons and fabric piece.
- Finally, fill the rest of the jar with water and secure the lid on top. Feast your eyes upon a miniature melted snowman!
5. Handprint Penguin
-Light Blue, White, and Orange Construction Paper
- Cover your hand in black paint and firmly press it down on the light blue construction paper, making a black handprint.
- While the paint is drying, use the white and orange paper to cut out a stomach and beak, respectively.
- Once dry, glue the googly eyes, beak, and stomach onto your penguin!
