Winter is a great season to be a child, but sometimes mommy and daddy have to decide that it’s too cold to go outside. What kind of fun crafts can children do with winter themes, allowing them to enjoy the snow and forget that they’re not actually outside in it? There are actually many, all of which are fun and safe at the same time.
A particularly simple but fun activity for winter play inside days is creating winter mittens out of paper and the outline of their own hand. This activity is not just appropriate for older children, but also for toddlers who always seem to have a blast using their imaginations to create stylish winter mittens in as many colors as there are crayons, colored pencils, water colors and sparkly dust to decorate them with.
