The month of March in New England is so unpredictable. In the event that we still have winter weather (which we do), we’ve put together a few fun winter craft ideas for you and your kids to do. Take a break from the remote or hybrid learning and get crafting!
For Your Little Ones
Melting Ice Science Experience – All you need is ice, salt, spoons or food droppers, and watercolors or food coloring.
Colored “Glass” Ice Orbs – Create beautiful winter orbs with balloons, water and coloring.
Snowflake Panting – Grab tape, paper and paint for this fun and magical craft.
Snowman Thumbprint Art – Tape off a snowman and let your kids fingerprint snow all around the paper.
For Your Tweens & Teens
DIY Snow Paint – Grab a few spray bottles, fill with water and food coloring and start creating a snow-masterpiece.
DIY Bird Feeder – Food is harder to come by in the winter for many animals. Here is a great Do-It-Yourself bird feeder with just bread, peanut butter and bird seed.
Winter Dioramas – Create a 3D winter wonderland scene, complete with animals in their natural habitats.
Paper Snowflakes – Grab a pair of scissors and white paper for an easy (yet time consuming and fun) project.
All of these crafts open up great conversation starters about how the world looks, what nature is doing, and what we experience in these last few weeks of winter.
