19 Jan Winter Wonderland: Woodland Inspired Snow Day Activities
It’s that time of year. It’s not quite Valentine’s Day. It isn’t spring yet. And January is the coldest, snowiest month of the year in many places. So what is a parent to do when it’s too cold for the kids to play outside, and you’re in need of a little peace and quiet? Well, make yourself a chai tea latte … take a deep breath … and have some relaxing fun with one of these activities, inspired by the stillness of wintry forests.
1. This Winter Small World, from Buggy and Buddy, is pleasing to the eye, and created using craft and pantry items you probably already have. Perfect for preschool through first graders. | 2. Masks are a hit with kids of all ages (okay, let’s admit it — adults, too). Use a white sheet to set up an impromptu ‘snowy’ photo booth, or pile the kids on downy bedding to show off their creations and capture a wonderful family memory! | 3. Blanket fort. It’s timeless because it works. This tent bed tutorial shows you how to up your game. | 4. Twigs, scrap lace, and faux feathers entwine in a lovely mobile. Use a singular branch to make a wall hanging, or tie leather or ribbon in place of lace.
