I’m very excited to have Maggy for Red Ted Art guest posting today with some fabulous winter crafts to make with kids. If here was a queen of kids crafts it would have to be Maggy, her site is always the one I see mentioned by friends and so I’m really happy to have her share some ideas with you too. I’m sure you’ll find something just perfect for keeping the kids busy during this colder weather!
We’ve officially reached that time of year when all my kids want to do is Christmas crafts and these sweet scrunched paper Christmas trees were perfect as it was something both my three year old and my six year old could enjoy. Tissue paper makes for a lovely sensory craft too with its noise and the feeling itself of scrunching itself and this simple craft is great for helping with fine motor skills too.
We do a lot of crafts and activities here but only some of them pass the most important test – do my kids get up the next day and ask to do it again? Well I’m happy to report that this Christmas jelly babies STEM challenge passed that test!
Whether it’s birthdays or Christmas wrapping presents all ways fills me with a slight sense of foreboding. I know it should be fun but… well I just find it a bit stressful – after all isn’t the unwrapping the fun bit?! Thankfully there are loads of people out there whose gift wrapping ideas far surpass mine with brilliant ideas for thrifty and creative wrapping and storage with a little bit of brilliance involved so I’ve put together this list of 20 gift wrapping hacks to make life a bit easier for the rest of us and to help inspire us to raise our game!
Recently I’ve been sharing some free printables of fun activities for kids here and they’ve proved so popular with you guys I thought it would be nice to share another one – after all if you’ve got kids you’ll know that you can never have too many activities up your sleeve! I shared a printable for a month of fun Christmas activities for kids here a few weeks ago but with December now starting and the outdoors here today covered in frost I thought I’d share a list of fun winter activities for kids with you.
