Top 10 Winter Crafts for Kids
Winter is in full Swing!
Cold days filled with warm socks, hot cups and cosying indoors with some crafts! Crafts teach so many great skills such as persistence, creativity, problem solving, hand eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Teaching and spending time with your kids while doing crafts together is also a great way to bring calm, balance and connection into your day.

Weaving is a wonderful winter time craft for kids and their families, it has a great rhythm and a grounding effect. One of our favourites during this chilly weather!
With Needle Felting you can create 2D pictures or 3D objects, you have a thin barbed needle that you press into wool over and over again to create knotting in the wool, the needle is sharp so is best for children 10 years plus or with strict guidance for younger children, our 6 and 9 year old's LOVE needle felting but have gotten a few sharp stabs in the fingers when working with 3D objects.
Knitting is one of the most classic winter crafts and for good reason, not only do you get to cosy up on the couch with a big ball of wool but you can also create your own WINTER WARMTH with a scarf, snuggly socks or a jumper for yourself or your dolls!
