It’s cold outside, which means it’s a great time to stay home and make these wonderful winter crafts for kids! Features collages, scenes and more!
In the famous song ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside‘ written by Frank Loesser, the host continues to persuade the guest to stay, indicating that it’s too cold to go outside. He has to try quite hard to convince his guest – we think that the mention of doing some crafts indoors may have sped things up a bit!
That’s the fun thing about crafts – you can do them indoors when the weather is bad, or you can find outdoor activities that are just as fun! Since we’re in the middle of winter right now, it seems to be the perfect time for some winter crafts for kids!
