Winter Crafts for the Indoors:

snowflakes(create kids crafts)

Paper Snowflakes

Supplies needed:

white paper
tea cup or round cup for tracing around
pencil
scissors
tape

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.


snowstorm in a jar (create kids crafts)

Snowglobe

Make a fascinating snow storm in a jar.

Supplies needed:

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
ribbon

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!

Paperplate Snowman

Supplies needed:

3 small paper plates
cotton balls
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

paintbrush
scissors

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.
