It's a snow day! It's snowing like crazy and our day's outings and lessons in town are cancelled.
Hm. So much for those warm days and cold nights! Well, if you're in the same storm-belt (or just want some simple kid crafts to do together), I've rounded up some tutorials to inspire you today! Many are from my own work, a few are from elsewhere, and all are big fun.
Turn your little's art into your favorite T.
Painted Rocks (By ISabelle Hessedjian)
While I can't find her tutorial (and her site is not in english), these are worth staring at. And making.
Substitute white rice flour for wheat and your dough can be gluten-free!
Plant Magic (By Misty Horizon)
Plant a seed and watch it grow.
More work for the adults than the kids, but a still a fun project to do together.
These are addictive. Replace those plastic eggs with quick, simple felt eggs!
Painted Blocks (By LMNOP Blog)
Check out this simple fun project!
One word: Yum.
Fabric covered Tins (by Green Bee)
Make a treasure box
Gorgeous, simple, magical.
Carve a Stamp (By Ishtar Olivera)
Simple fun for kids old enough to wield a knife.
A sweet, simple, free-form play crown.
Handmade Book (by Bird and Little Bird)
Craft a tiny book for tiny hands.
All you need is soap and some wool.
(Really now. You knew I'd throw that in, didn't you?)
If you have heavy cream and a blender (or a jar and a couple of marbles) you can make butter!
Make a Naked Egg (By Imagination Station Toledo)
Dissolve the shell off of a chicken egg.
We love these.
And with that, I'm off to craft with my kids. Have a wonderful day, whatever the weather in your world!

I’m nearby in Middleton and was actually HOPING for a snow day! I just taught my 7-yo son to knit so we were going to dye yarn together for the first time. Winter’s not over…
Enjoy your snowy day!
We are approaching March Break here in Ontario. This list ought to come in handy next week!
Thanks a million.
I always love the still-winter-but-barely stormy days. Because soon enough busy spring will be here. Enjoy!
Thank you! You too (if that applies!).
Just ordered some 100% merino wool felt to make some felt eggs and bunny bags I saw on one of your other posts about spring. I can’t wait to make them for my daughter! It’ll be her second Easter and I’m so excited to try some of your ideas. Thanks, Rachel!
We also have Spring Break approaching and we live in the rainy West Coast of Canada- so we are looking at a week of indoor play with three kids! Thanks for all the fun crafts- homemade butter I think will be first up on our list of things to try!
How lovely! There has been LOTS of felt crafting going on over here. (Mostly by me!) Have fun, Rachel
Butter is so rewarding! Enjoy.
