Winter is upon us, and that means more time spent indoors with our little ones. This guide is filled with festive kids art ideas and ways to get crafty with your kiddos over the holiday season. Whether you are spending more of your homeschool time inside, or your kids have a winter break to be filled with memory-making, you’ll find plenty of project ideas that are easy, fun, and created using affordable supplies.
Making art with your family shouldn’t be stressful; that’s why I’m sharing my tried-and-true favorite no-fail art projects that will ensure everyone enjoys their time crafting. You’ll find supply lists for each project, step-by-step instructions, photos for guidance and inspiration, and tips for a smoother experience, all based on my experience teaching and making art with kids.
Choose one, two, a few, or all of these projects to create with your family during this season and use the techniques and mediums to inspire your making all year long. I hope that you’ll find at least one activity that you can enjoy with those you love during this special time of year.
