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!
