Snowy Day Activity/ Craft Ideas. If you are like me and live in a s snowier part of the country, chances are your students are probably getting little stir crazy. And it’s only January! It’s easy for kids to get bored with the same old toys and activities. So, why not change it up? Here are some fun, creative crafts to do on the grayest of days.
Snowy Day Activity/ Craft Ideas.
Glittery Snowflakes-Print out a pattern of a snowflake then add glue and glitter. Hang them from your ceiling for a winter wonderland. Two pattern books you can purchase are The Mailbox Big Book of Patterns or Big Book of Patterns Grades K-6.
Snowman Decorating-Print out a pattern of a snowman and let your kids decorate it any way they want with buttons, bows, scraps of felt, markers, crayons, glitter, etc.
Playing in the snow-Keep a small, shallow box in your closet and when it freshly snows, get some and let your kids play in it at the table. They will have an absolute blast and all it takes to clena up is some rags or absorbent paper towels and a mop.
Polar Express-Arrange the chairs in your room into two rows and let the kids imagine they are on the polar express.

Board Games-Bust through boredom by letting the older kids play board games. Make sure you have games in your teacher’s closet for all ages.
Homemade Playdough-Make a batch of homemade play dough ahead of time and watch your kids have a blast.
Fingerpaint-No paintbrushes required, let those little fingers work their creative magic. Don’t forget the smocks or if it’s easier, ask parents to bring in old t-shirts they don’t want for days when you paint. This one is definitely a messy but fun snowy day activity.
Make Snow Cones-Ask your parents if anyone has a snow cone machine. If so, have them bring it in and make snow cones one day for snack time. 🙂
It can be hard coming up with things to do during “cabin fever” season. Take these snowy day activity/craft ideas and go from ‘I’m bored.” to ‘Score!”
