Winter Crafts for Kids
Welcome to my winter crafts for kids section here at create-kids-crafts.com. Here you'll find easy, inexpensive winter crafts for kids that will be enjoyed.
Winter Crafts for the Indoors:
tea cup or round cup for tracing around
Trace around tea cup onto the paper. Cut out the circle. Fold it in half. Fold the semi circle in thirds, to make a cone shape. Snip shapes in all the edges. Unfold the paper. Tape your snowflakes on a window.
Here is a beautiful 3-D snowflake.
Make a fascinating snow storm in a jar.
small baby food jar
glitter, foil confetti or eggshells
glue for snowglobe:clear silicone sealant(Aquarium sealant)
florist clay(if using tiny toy)
tiny toy or greenery
distilled water or water that has been boiled and cooled
glycerin or mineral oil or baby oil
Adult help required with glueing.
Put something interesting in the jar, such as a small toy like a tiny snowman. In order to elevate the scene so it is in clear view, glue a plastic lid inside the jar lid or build up the area with a little extra florist clay. Be sure to leave the edges clear so you have room to screw on the lid. Fill the jar up to 1/4 inch from the rim with water.Prepare your snow using the shell from a hard boiled egg. Separate the shell from the membrane, place in a ziplock bag, and crush with a rolling pin. Finer particles will fall more slowly in the snowglobe and have a more pleasing effect. Avoid crushing eggshell into a powder as it will simply float in the water instead of falling gently. Add several drops of glycerin or mineral oil or baby oil to the water to keep the snow suspended and floating properly. Spoon in some glitter(not too much though). Seal the lid with a bead of silicone sealant around the threads of the lid and close tightly. When the glue is dry, turn the jar upside down and watch it snow. Wrap and glue a thin ribbon around the outside lid of the jar.These snowglobes are great winter crafts for kids!
3 small paper plates
white paper glue
colored markers or crayons
stapler and staples or tape
Staple or tape the three plates together(each plate rim stapled or taped to the next plate rim)to form your snowman. Draw your snowman's face on the top plate. Glue cotton balls on the bottom two plates and a few on the face plate. For a carrot nose, you could cut a piece of orange paper into a triangle and then roll and tape it into a pointy "carrot." Make a small hole in the plate for the nose and push it in from the back.
peanut in it's shell
white tempera paint
black and orange construction paper scraps
small safety pin
In a small bowl, mix a few drops of glue into a teaspoon of white paint. Sprinkle the wet paint with salt and set peanut aside to dry. Cut a hat, eyes and buttons from the black construction paper. Cut a carrot nose from the orange construction paper. Glue the pieces onto the peanut snowman. Cut a 6 inch piece of red yarn. Tie the yarn around the peanut snowman to make a scarf. Secure the scarf with glue. Trim the ends. Slip the back of a safety pin through the yarn scarf at the back of the snowman.
Winter Crafts for kids for the outdoors:
Pinecone Bird Feeder
string or yarn
Go on a nature walk with your child and collect some pinecones. Spread peanut butter all around the pinecone and then roll the pinecone in bird seed. Tie a length of string or yarn to it and hang it on a tree.
You need freezing weather to make this.
shoelace or heavy string
9 inch disposable pie plate
a variety of nature items
Fold the shoelace in half and place the two ends across the center of the pie plate. Arrange your nature items in the plate. Fill the disposable plate with water and leave it outside to freeze. When the water has frozen, remove the ice from the plate. Hang the ice circle from a tree in a sunny spot so you can see it from your window.
