15 Easy DIY Winter DIY Crafts and Projects for Kids and Adults!

Winter art and crafts activities

Sure, playing outside the snow is fun and all but it is understandable where there are days you just want to stay inside your home and light a fire in your fireplace. However, it is also important to keep your kids entertained during the wintertime! Here are some indoor winter activities your kids will enjoy.

  • DIY Christmas decorations. A good Christmas tree should reflect your family. With this, give your children the freedom to decorate their tree how they want it (with a little guidance from your of course).
  • Bake. Nothing beats a chilly weather than a warm batch of baked goodies! This will also encourage your kids to know their way around the kitchen! 
  • DIY snowman decor – you can decorate your house with some snowmen using popsicle sticks, cotton, socks, and more! 
  • Board games – Take out your board games and play a game that is fun for all ages! This is a good way for the whole family to bond.

 You can also take this opportunity to teach them something creative and new instead of just giving them the option to watch TV or use their phone and computer for endless hours. You may think that your options are few and limited when it comes to activities that you can do in the comfort of your own home but what you don’t realize is entertaining your teens does not require you a lot. You just need to present them with interesting and productive activities (and maybe a reward at the end), and your teens will be entertained for the rest of the day. 

  • Baking (you can never go wrong with cookies and brownies as a start) 
  • Painting or drawing
  • Painting your nails 
  • Scrapbooking
  • Journaling
  • Make a collage out of old magazines
  • Knit and embroidery
  • Bead jewelry making
  • Make an ice cream
  • Do makeovers on each other
  • Clean your wardrobes 

Educational and printable winter crafts

Being stuck at home should not limit you and your kids to be entertained and productive. Actually, this is the perfect time for you and your family to bond and do some fun activities!

Games especially will help your children practice a longer attention span as they will be focused on the task at hand. It is also always good to add in some educational games such as quizzes or flashcards to hone their memory and problem-solving skills.

With all that said, you may now be wondering about what things or games to buy. But if you must know, you can actually just print out these kinds of games within the comforts of your own home! Some of the few educational printable games you can find online are: 

  • Maze games. This will challenge your children to use their brains and think of ways to escape. There are different themes of mazes so be sure to choose ones that you are sure to catch the interest of your kids. 
  • Word search. If your kids are already at the stage where they can read and write, then word search is a great game to try. Depending on the skill of your child, you may want to print out easy or intermediate levels. 
  • Connect the dots. Kids of all ages always love this kind of game. You can choose to print out numbers or the alphabet instead of plain dots to further challenge your children.
  • Spot the difference. This is also a fun and challenging game for your kids that is easily printable. Make sure to print fun photos that your kids will love!
  • Color by number. To further hone your children’s artistic sides, you may give them a simple coloring page or you can also print out photos with specific numbers to them wherein there are assigned colors to the numbers.
