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.

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.
