15 Fun Winter Crafts for Kids

How do you keep the kids busy when the weather causes them to be stuck indoors more than we’d all like?  In my home, we read, we play games, and we do puzzles, but what gets my kids most excited is a fantastic crafting project. If it keeps their minds off of electronics, then I’m all for it.

I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite, relatively easy winter crafts for kids so you can all have as much fun as we’re having during the cold weather.  The kids will love these, and if you choose to use some of their crafts as winter decorations, they’ll be really proud too.  Keep warm and enjoy!
