Snow Day crafts

Happy New Year!

It's early January, and for many part of the U.S. that means snowy weather is in the forecast! Louisville actually had enough snow and ice yesterday to cancel school. If you're looking for some ideas to entertain the kiddos (or yourself), here are some ideas!



Instead of using ribbon to make ornaments, try a magnet on the back to stick on the fridge. Another tip--other lids like from peanut butter and jelly jars would also work. Just use the "top" of the lid as the back of the "frame" for your photos.






If you have children at home, you probably have some wooden blocks that aren't being used. Re-purpose them by cutting shapes out of craft foam and gluing the foam to the block to create a handmade stamp!










Let the kiddos play with their food for once by using small marshmallows and toothpicks to make shapes. My nephew taught me this craft a few years ago. You might even try to make a crown, like we did.







My nephew and I did this craft for Presidents Day one year. It's easy for kids of almost any age, and is a budget friendly way to keep them entertained at home.








As you can see, stamps are popular around here. That's probably because they are such a cheap way to craft with household items! This is another craft easy enough for any skill level. My nephew and I used a Kentucky shaped cookie cutter for some of our stationary.

Hopefully you have enjoyed some of these easy craft ideas for snow days! I know there are always shows or movies to watch or cookies to bake, but sometimes it's nice to entertain yourself or your kids with something crafty!
