By this time of year I tend to start getting sick of winter. Let's face it though, there is no escaping it unless I want to climb aboard a plane and fly south. Instead of getting grumpy about winter, why not celebrate it. I have gathered together 50 simple winter related activities for you to try. It includes everything from simple arts and crafts projects to tasty snacks and fun games.

Here is a sampling of what you will find in my collection of easy winter crafts and activities:

  • Gather several pairs of mittens. Sort them by size, color, design, left hand, right hand, etc.

  • Make miniature igloos using marshmallows and frosting.

  • Paint the snow using food coloring or tempera paint mixed with water. Put the mixture in a squirt bottle and have a blast!

  • Make a snowstorm inside by tearing up several pieces of white paper. Place them on a sheet or towel, have everyone grab around the edge, and toss the snow into the air.

  • Cut snowflakes out of coffee filters and hang them around the room.

  • Finger paint snowflakes on the windows using white tempera paint mixed with a bit of dish soap!

  • Read all 50 Easy Winter Activities

If you can't beat winter, celebrate it everyday with these crafts and activities. After the read my ideas, take a moment to share your own simple winter activities. They could get published for all to enjoy.
