Looking for some activities to keep the kids entertained while its still too cold or wet to go outside? I found some really good ideas over at tip junkie. Why not use some of these ideas until the weather starts to warm up and spring arrives.

Snow Craft

1.  Snow Ball Soap ~ Hide a small toy inside and they are the perfect gift for kids to make each other! Keep a few around for bath time fun this winter or on display in your bathroom. 

2.  Ice Ornaments ~ Make these cute and easy ice ornaments with your kiddos this winter to put some fun in those long, cold days. 

3.  Peg Dolls Winter Wonderland ~ Make your own winter scene using cardboard and the free templates.  Using cardboard makes them extra durable.  {{wink}}

4.  Winter Wonderland Windowscape ~ These snowflake suncatchers are absolutely dreamy!  Kids can paint the suncatchers with suncatcher transparent paint, string and hang them in front of the nearest window or even in a tree.

How To Make Snow Ice Cream

5.  Winter Ice Cream Shop ~ Here is a great way to bring the winter fun inside where it’s warm! A clever way to keep the toddler to elementary school aged kids in your home occupied with a ice cream shop serving fresh snow! The kids will love it, and you’ll love how easy this is to set up and put away!



6.  Snow Window {indoor sensory play} ~ You don’t have to have snow to enjoy this snow craft.  Kids can use their imagination and creativity to build a winter scene using q-tips, cotton balls, cotton pads and contact paper. 

7.  Ice Marbles ~ This is a great post with an idea that could double as both a science lesson and just plain fun! Using water balloons and some really cold winter weather you’ll get some pretty ice marbles. Easy to make and super fun to see!

8.  Arctic Slime ~ A fun boredom buster your kiddo’s will love.  It’s super easy and cheap.  All the ingredients can be found in your local grocery store.
