We’ve had some pretty cold days here this week, and the kids have been stuck inside. While they’ve been pretty occupied with new toys they got for Christmas, we’ve still needed to come up with some ideas for activities.
The oldest has been pretty happy with his GameCube, but my youngest daughter (5 yrs old), needed something to do. Since she loves jewelry, we got her some beads and things for Christmas. We sat down together and spent part of the day making bracelets, necklaces, and other interesting things. She absolutely loved it, and it’s a pretty inexpensive craft.
If you need more of a complete kit, you can find kids craft kits at S&S Worldwide. They have a pretty large selection of kits, many of which come in bulk. Meaning you can make more than one of the craft shown. Since Valentine’s day is right around the corner, you may want to check out their holiday specific items as well. There’s really enough here to keep them busy for hours for a little bit of nothing.
