Do you have a ton of old newspaper sitting around the house that you’ve been waiting to use for something? If you do, then you’re in luck because you can easily make this cute shredded snowman with them. Shred the newspaper (or whatever other paper you have), and put it out for the kids. Then have them glue the shreds onto a piece of cardboard or construction paper. If they make the shreds into the shape of a snowman, then they can decorate it from there. The result is going to be super cute, which means you can even hang it up once they’re done.
If you take your kids on a walk and come across some pinecones, let them bring them home. That’s because there are so many different winter craft ideas you can do with them. Put out a bunch of craft supplies, and tell your kids to get creative. They could use paper and felt to make an owl, a butterfly, or even an elf. The possibilities are endless, and the main material is entirely free.

Okay, this one can get messy, but if you’re alright with doing some supervising, it’s sure to be a lot of fun. Get kids to put their hands in white paint so they can make fingerprints on a canvas. Once the paint has dried, you can let them go ahead and add decorations to the snowmen to make them their own.
