Keep active little minds and bodies engaged this winter break with some clever crafts for kids. Simple supplies and scraps of fabric come together to create colorful Finger Puppets (adding a small screw eye to the top turns them into insta-ornaments too!) Keep younger kids busy making pretend cookies and baked goods with Gingerbread Playdough. It smells delicious, looks like the real thing but is purely for play. Is your little one a decorator in the making? Have them create their own Hanging Paper Tree accents from patterned papers and trinkets – they look adorable suspended from curtain rods as holiday decor. To finish off the day, help them whip up a batch of Marshmallow Sugarplums to share with friends!
