A couple of days ago we made a paper plate ice skating craft. It was a huge hit with our audience, but an even bigger hit with my little girl. She couldn’t get enough of it. She loved making the skater move around the “ice”(paper plate). Almost as soon as we finished making it, she said “I know what we can do next. We need to make a skiing craft.” She was so excited about this that she could not wait, so together we brainstormed and came up with this adorable snowman skier.

My five year old is an aspiring hockey star. She loves it on the ice and I love watching her. An old photo of her on skates inspired this paper plate ice skater craft. If you are looking for a cute and sweet winter project, don’t look any further. These adorable ice skaters are a fun winter craft with an interactive twist. Your kids will love coloring in the printable templates. They can add their own faces or draw in ones of their own design.
♫ Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, this fork painted Christmas tree craft is looooovely!! ♫
We love playing around with different painting methods., especially ones where we get to paint without brushes. If you have a disposable fork and some paint, you can make this pretty project today. This technique is fun, easy and perfect for painting Christmas trees or winter tree landscapes.
Yarn wrapped crafts have always been a favorite of ours. We have made yarn wrapped hearts, dolls and even bumble bees, but nothing has ever seemed quite as fitting to be wrapped in yarn than these winter hats. These yarn wrapped winter hats are a cute, colorful and a wonderful craft and activity to exercise those fine motor skills.
I am kind of addicted to snowflake crafts. I love the symmetry and since no two snowflakes are the same, think of all of the design possibilities. I could make snowflakes all day and with all of these wonderful snowflake craft ideas, I really could. There are snowflakes made with paper, snowflakes sewn with yarn, snowflakes made out of hand prints and even snowflakes painted on rocks. Which is your favorite?
There are not many things cuter than an adorable waddling penguin, except for maybe three adorable waddling penguins. These penguins look like they are waddling in this easy rocking paper plate penguin craft.
Believe it or not, there are only 55 days left until Christmas. Before we know it Santa will be coming to town and he will be heading to a chimney near you. We made fun pop-up puppets a few months back and they were a big hit with my little girl. I couldn’t wait to make them again. These Santa puppets are a great idea for the holiday season. The Dixie cups made a perfect chimney for Santa to pop in and out of.
My five-year old loves to color. Last year she pushed aside her coloring books and dove into my adult coloring books and that is all that she will color now. She spends days working diligently on every small detail of the page that she is working on and does a beautiful job. My daughter’s love for coloring, inspired me to try my hand at making my first coloring page. For a first attempt, it is not perfect, but my little one and I both enjoyed it. Get your own printable snowflake coloring page below.
Gobble gobble gobble! Thanksgiving is a month away. If you are looking for a simple and fun Thanksgiving craft that you can do with the kids, here you go. This paint scraped turkey craft is as easy as it comes and only takes about 10 minutes to make.
Vampirina Mania has taken over our house. My daughter cannot get enough of that adorable little vampire. I have to admit, I like her too. It is such a cute cartoon about a little vampire girl just trying to find her place in the human world with a little help from her human and not-so-human friends. Our new favorite character inspired this vampire girl paper plate mask.
