Winter art and craft projects can keep the kids busy when it’s not as easy to play outside.
This tailored selection of kids winter craft projects are perfect for having fun and learning through art and craft.
With kids benefiting from the process of cutting, sticking, glueing, drawing and painting (and more!) all of which help to improve fine motor skills, develop coordination and their problem solving skills.
As always, I like to keep things simple and offer choice.
As you work through these easy winter crafts, you will notice that some ideas really are super duper easy – ideal if you’re looking for quick toddler and preschool appropriate winter craft ideas.
A couple are a little more challenging, which is handy if you have multiple kids like me, or are classroom based, with varying abilities, attention spans and interests!
There is something for everyone and all age groups of children!
