Winter Crafts

Amber Brandt  |  January 30, 2024
No matter where you live, winter is a great time for snuggling up with those you love, playing games around the dining table, or exercising your creativity with a few seasonal crafts.
 
Not only is crafting a fun way to pass a chilly, dark evening, research shows it gives us health benefits too! According to Spectrum Health and Human Services, crafting “regardless of the medium you use, can bolster mood, improve self-confidence, and reduce stress overall. In addition, crafting has also shown to improve mental agility, both gross and fine motor movements, and decrease cognitive decline.”
 
So, what are you waiting for!? Let’s pull together that brain power to make something adorable. We’ve pulled together a short list of winter crafts you and your kids will love (mostly with items you already have on hand)!

These chalk drawings are so eye catching; your child will probably think they’re reminiscent of Frozen.

Delicious, puffy, and adorable.
