6 Creative Snow Day Crafts to Keep Kids Occupied

Get creative with the kids on a snow day with these fun crafts!

Keeping the kids active and entertained on a snow day may seem like a task that’s as daunting as shoveling snow, but there’s no need to resort to having them watch a day’s worth of TV. Instead, get creative with the kids by making some fun snow day crafts! There’s often more paper and recyclable material around the house than you realize, so there’s bound to be some creative materials to work with even if you’re snowed in and can’t make it to the craft store. We’ve gathered some of our favorite snow day crafts, so get ready to get inspired and crafty during the next snow storm!

  • Use card stock and yarn to create this adorable pair of mittens seen on She Knows! This is a great way for kids to learn how to work with precision and it results in a simply sweet decorative craft!
  • Make your own snowy scene by creating a DIY snow globe like this one seen on Story by Modcloth! Use your favorite color glitter and a cute figurine to easily create this craft.
  • Make these adorable penguin puppets found on I Can Teach My Child with a few easy steps! If you don’t have googly eyes at home, you can draw on the eyes and other features to your liking.
  • Is it too cold to go outside to make a snowman? Create a festive indoor snowman like this one seen on Modern Parents Messy Kids! This fluffy snow is easily made out of cornstarch and shaving cream and can be decorated with extra materials and buttons.
  • Create beautiful paper snowflakes like this one seen on Sturdy for Common Things with paper that you have around the house! If your little one’s hands are still too small to handle scissors, consider having them play the creative director, telling you where to snip and you can do the trimming for them.
  • Create a simple ring toss game like this one seen on She Knows! After the kids have finished creating it, they’ll have fun tossing the rings from different distances throughout the day.
