I know that winter doesn't technically start for a couple weeks, but someone forgot to tell mother nature and we have already been visited by a pretty fierce snowstorm already. The snow hasn't completely melted and we are already expecting to get slammed with another snow storm tonight.
I actually love snow. We go snowshoeing and cross country skiing, but there is only so much time you can spend outside before you have to come in to thaw out.
Most of us are content to curl up with a book and a cup of hot cocoa, but my youngest son is extremely active. If I don't find things to keep him busy, he will find ways to occupy himself, which sounds like a good thing, but it isn't. At all! He kind of has a thing for markers and labeling things. People say it is a stage and he will outgrow it, but after 4 years I have my doubts. The one way I can ensure he will be well behaved is to plan crafts and activities to keep him busy. Below are 15 Winter Crafts for Kids that I have pulled together to help me keep my son busy when he is stuck inside this weekend.
