Kick Cabin Fever to the Curb

"The weather outside is frightful." Is there a lyric that more accurately describes the winter weather? Winter break is right around the corner and, understandably, you may not be super eager to play with your kids outside in the cold and snow (we don't blame you)! But just because you're staying inside doesn't mean you can't enjoy the season!

This "snow dough" is easy to make and SNOW much fun to play with! It's super soft, naturally cold, and, we saved the best part for last, it doesn't require any cooking! Use beads and a variety of other fun embellishments to create snowmen! When your kids are done playing for the day, just store the dough in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container until next time. Find the instructions at Growing a Jeweled Rose!

This winter hat craft is the perfect indoor activity for kids and can be tailored to any age group. Use a variety of markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, and whatever else you can think of to decorate the hats! For younger kids, have an adult cut the hats out after the decoration process. Find the template and full directions at Easy Peasy and Fun!

This fun mitten math snowflake counting activity is a great way to incorporate some math into winter break! Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, this winter-themed counting game helps with number recognition and fine motor skills! It's easy to set up and will keep your little one busy and productive! Find the instructions at Stir the Wonder!

This snowflake painting project might be messy, but it sure is fun! Two activities combined into one, kids can first decorate their canvases with either coffee filter snowflakes or painter's tape! After that, use paint, glitter, and anything else fun to turn the canvas into a winter wonderland! Peel off the tape or coffee filters and voila! Find the step by step directions at Little Bins for Little Hands!

In Your Element

Is it almost your little Einstein's birthday? A science party is a great way to embrace your child's love for science! You can also sneak in a few educational activities! This build your own molecule project is fun, tasty, and educational! Guests can choose from a variety of molecules and then create them with candy and toothpicks! Find instructions and free printables from One Project Closer!

These "beaker" cups are not only useful, but decorative as well! Put several on the food table and serve up "toxic juice," aka, a fun-colored beverage like Kool-Aid, in a large pitcher that looks like a beaker! Check out The Princess & The Frog for complete instructions!

Our science confetti, which features purple atoms, and grey, green, and orange beakers, is the perfect finishing touch to the buffet table! The beaker cups surrounded by our science confetti makes for a picture perfect table!

If you're looking for an alternative to cake, an ice cream sundae bar is a great dessert option! To fit the theme, serve the ice cream in beakers, which you can find on Amazon. If you're feeling ambitious (and have the freezer room), you can scoop the ice cream into the beakers the night before the party, leaving less to do the day of! Check out Left Brain Craft Brain for directions!
