Winter

It may be winter outside, but in our hearts it’s craft time! Or something like that… We might dread the winter cold, but for kids it’s all about fun - stomping in the snow, sledding and building snowmen. But you can’t be outside all day - once those little fingers get too cold then there’s plenty of fun to be had inside too. You can create cheerful snowmen pictures, snowflakes from paper or crystal, paint snow scenes or make ice sculptures. Another great activity is making bird feeders to bring some relief to the wildlife in your garden.
