Date Created: 11/22/2011


Top 3 tips to throw an engaging kid's winter craft party. Being a kid in the middle of winter can be tough - unless there's snow on the ground, there's probably not a lot to do. This is especially true during the holiday season, when kids can't wait for Christmas and Hanukkah and they're a bit restless. To help them get through the holiday season or to plan an activity for after the new year, a winter party centered around fun craft projects could be a exciting way to spend a chilly day. Be sure to keep a few of these projects and decorative ideas in mind for your little ones.

1. Construct a bird feeder. Once you have decked out your space with party centerpieces, mylar balloons, streamers and other winter party supplies, you can get the kids settled in with a craft project. A bird feeder is a wonderful option for this time of year, and you can teach the children a helpful message about recycling. Creating a bird feeder out of an old milk carton or soap bottle is quite easy - you simply need to cut a hold in the side, hang it up with a string and fill it up with bird seed for the animals to enjoy.

2. Soda bottle polar bear. All you need are some empty two-liter soda bottles, markers, white paint and small embellishments to create something spectacular, according to Kaboose.com. Paint the bottles for the kids beforehand, then give them glitter, buttons, beads and other small items to decorate the bottles with. The kids will have creative freedom to whip up their own unique polar bear, and it will be a welcome addition to their parents' décor throughout the holidays.

3. Paper snowflakes. These gorgeous craft projects are quick and easy, without the cleanup of glue and paint. Simply make small circles of paper using the bottom of a coffee can. Then, fold the paper in half and give the children scissors to cut small designs into both sides of the paper. When they're unfolded, the kids will have beautiful paper snowflakes they can use to decorate windows all around their homes.

A winter craft party is an excellent way to break the doldrums of the cold weather, and there are a number of engaging projects that you and your kids can enjoy throughout the season.
