Chilly winter weather means more time inside, and kids can quickly become bored. If it seems like toys are all played out and TV is turning your kids into couch potatoes, it might be time to break out the art supplies! Here are 5 Winter Tree Crafts for Kids that will help bust that winter boredom!
Kids can use q-tips to paint snowy details on their winter trees! This project is perfect for younger children and it’s also good for working on fine motor skills.
Discover the beauty of Birch Trees in winter with this watercolor painting project! Kids will use painter’s tape to “draw” the tree trunks and kosher salt to create a snowy sky.
This is a really cool project using Legos to create a winter tree. It would be fun to expand on this by changing up the tree for each of the four seasons!
Using peanut butter and seeds, kids can create a bird feeder from pine cones found right in the backyard! Hang your feeder by a window so you can watch birds gather all winter long.
If you have pine cones left over from making bird feeders, check out this adorable snowy owl craft! Kids will love pulling apart cotton balls to stuff the owl body. A set of googly eyes gives the little guy a charming personality that will warm your heart this winter season!
