Happy New Year! Hope you all had a great time celebrating.
After some meditation, I’ve decided my word for 2016 will be ‘commitment.’ I want to commit to everything I set my mind to – exercise programs, home renovations, eating whole foods, finishing projects, etc. And one thing on my to-do list is finding indoor activities to entertain my toddler with this winter (so he doesn’t veg out watching Mickey all day long). I want to commit to planning and executing these activities.
One day, maybe we’ll get some snow in these parts so that we can make some crafts with real snow. If not, I’ve also included a few fun crafts and activities for making your own pretend snow. Enjoy!
If you have fresh snow on the ground outside, I love the idea of this snow volcano. My son would want to do this over and over again!
Creating a sensory bin with snow is easy – plastic figures, sand toys, even Mr. Potato Head pieces! I especially like painting snow – just water tinted with food coloring.
This easy snowflake macaroni craft is really simple, but so cute!
Frozen Erupting Snow – I might leave the glitter out of this one (man, I hate glitter), but I know my son would love this pretend snow!
Two ingredient play snow that’s easy to clean up? Yes, definitely.
This snow slime requires preplanning, as it calls for specific ingredients that you may not have on hand. That said, I’d love to try this one at least once. My son loves playing with regular slime!
You better believe we’ll be making this snow ice cream this winter. Yum!
