Crafts for kids
We love this smiley sock snowman. It's a great kids' craft to make at this time of year and all you really need is a white sock, some rice and felt to decorate it with
This child-friendly autumnal craft is so easy to do and will make a pretty feature displayed in a bowl with potpourri, or scattered along your mantlepiece...
Make this cute little Peppa-inspired toy from a plastic cup, a child's sock and assistance from some pink pig-loving little helpers...
Take one loo roll tube and turn it into jolly Santa, with a round belly and a beard as white as, well, cotton wool. The kids will love making this fun Christmas craft!
Crafts for kids
Winter is such a great time to make crafts with the kids because when it's cold and wet outside you can keep warm and cosy inside by gathering around the table and making some fun crafts.
But just because it's chilly outside doesn't mean you can't get out and about too, hunting for some free and natural craft materials on your doorstep. Look for conkers, pine cones, and dried leaves to make nice things out of, like peg dolls with clothes made out of garden leaves, or colouful pine cones to decorate your home with.
And if the school holidays are approaching, you'll be looking for lots of fun ways to get creative with the kids so they don't get bored! Let them try making loads of different crafts that you can give out as special homemade presents for their loved ones.
