Easy Winter Crafts

As the temperature starts dropping, here we come up with easy winter crafts for 2 years olds. All of these crafts are super easy to make, but your little ones cannot make themselves. Although, you have to help them in every step.

These ideas are not just limited to the littles ones, older kids can also enjoy making these.

If you are a teacher, these activities would work great on your class art table. They also look great on bulletin boards and windows!

If you are a parent, make a hot cocoa pot for the children and sit down at the kitchen table with your children. Enjoy your winter projects!

Snowflake Craft

It is a classic craft really simple, but with some tips, you can spare yourself the cleaning of glue gobs on the floor, mouth, or hair of your baby.

As you can see, she loves making this snowflake craft for toddlers and points to her and asks me to hold her up to touch the window every day.

What you need

  • Glue
  • Paper Sheet
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • A dish

Instructions (step by step)

Collect your materials. I used 2 pieces, one to glue the cotton balls on and one to use as a backing to make it strong enough to hang it up.

First, add a little white glue to a small dish.

Paint the glue on the paper as a snowflake.

Add the kiddo and cotton balls.

Because the glue is so thin the stick of cotton balls but if they collect it there will not be a ton of glue on it.

I rotated the paper as it filled up each arm of the snowflake.

Label the textures as they explore and make the snowflake- soft, sticky glue, rough or smooth paper.

Winter Pinecone Craft

This frosted pinecone craft creates a wonderful decoration for winter. Adding white paint and glitter is a festive preschool winter pinecone art!

We call them “frosty pine cones”. We asked our pre-school children and their families to pick up pine cones in their backyards over the weekend.

They brought a lovely collection to the school Monday, so we had a variety to choose from.

What you need

  • pinecones
  • white tempera paint
  • silver glitter

Instructions (step by step)

Before we started this art project, we explored our pineapple collection. When the kids took their pine cones to school, they placed them on our scientific shelf. We did a comparison of the size.

Let’s get started, place the pineapples on a table with white paint trays.

Apply the white paint to the pine cone.

Shake the glitter on the wet paint.

For this part, you can first place the pine cone in some kind of tray to collect glitter which does not stick.

See what else might happen – glitter everywhere!

You can tie some yarn around the top if you want to hang it.

A frosty and sparkly pine cone craft for winter.
