10 Quick & Beautiful Winter Crafts for Kids

Winter leads to thoughts of falling snow, building snowmen, sledging and evenings spent in front of a roaring fire. Though from where I sit right now it is just raining and raining 🙂 If like me there is not a snowflake in sight there is no excuse not to explore these wonderful winter crafts. 

You will find crafts for icicles, slime, snowflakes, snow globes, bird feeders and paintings. Each activity has easy to follow instructions, some even have step-by-step video guides. You can find affiliate links under each craft description for important supplies.

You can also find a roundup of wonderful winter picture books. Some take you from autumn to winter and describe hibernation. Others explore characters dealing with winter from the funny to the more realistic.
