3 Fun January Crafts For Kids

Posted on January 24, 2022 by Ladybug Child Care Center

Picture of a family happily sitting in snow.The holidays are over and we’re finally getting back to our normal routines. On the one hand, it’s nice that things are slowing down and less hectic. On the other hand, this time of the year can be pretty boring.

If you’re feeling the winter blues, your little bugs probably feel the same way! They have a ton of energy and creativity, so being cooped up inside on freezing-cold days can make them feel antsy. If you’re looking for some fun things to do, try out a few of these!

1) Food Coloring In Snow

You can use bowls or smaller storage bins for this project. Fill up the bowl or bin with snow and bring it inside. Then, use food coloring to decorate the snow! The kiddos can use their imaginations and make fun works of art and the cleanup is easy. Simply pour the snow into the sink or throw it back outside.

2) Snowmen Of All Kinds

Snowmen don’t have to go away just because the holidays are over! If the weather is too cold to build an outdoor snowman, you could always make these ones in your own home:

  • Cotton-ball snowmen with construction paper hats and accessories.
  • Snowmen-shaped cookies and Rice Krispie bars (If you’re over that sugar crash from Christmas cookies, of course, 😉).
  • Foam and styrofoam snowmen with fabric hats and accessories.

3) Valentine’s Cards For Family

This cute holiday isn’t until February, but that doesn’t mean you and your little ones can’t make cards now! Grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins, and other family members appreciate knowing they’re loved. Making Valentine’s cards can be a fun project that also lets your family and friends know that you care.
