Snow Inspired Crafts for Young Children

I love Christmas Activities – it’s something that brings my family together with their varying ages. You can’t go wrong with sweets either!

Sweet Snowmen

You will need:

curlywurly pieces

dolly mixtures

strawberry laces

or anything else sweet you fancy

build_a_snowman

First take a marshmallow and cover it in icing.

Then place another marshmallow and top and cover the whole lot in icing.

Let the children enjoy sticking the other sweets to it to make a face, arms, scarf – hair or whatever they fancy!

Even very young children can join in. This is a face made by my 2 year old all by himself.

Even my nearly 15 year old joined in.

They all enjoyed eating at the sweets as we built them too.

Snowflakes

Another simple activity you just need paper and scissors

Make a square with the paper

fold_paper-snowflake

Fold it diagonally to make a triangle.

Then fold it exactly the same again until you have folded it 4 times.

cutting_paper

Cut out some shapes and unfold.

Then you can thread something through it – wool, string, cotton – and hang it on the tree, or make bunting from it.
