Winter Crafts for Kids
Looking for some fun winter crafts for kids? You’ve come to the right place! Below are listed five easy winter crafts to complete with your child over the winter season! As a speech language pathologist, I also describe how to incorporate speech and language skills into each activity. Please comment below with your favorite easy winter craft for kids!
This winter coloring book will be sure to provide lots of fun and opportunities to increase your child’s language skills. Have your child request for what color he wants to use. Talk to your child about what section he wants to color. For example, Do you want to color the scarf or the hat?. Have your child talk about what is happening on the page he is coloring (She is skiing or He is jumping).
This winter craft is perfect if your child is working on requesting. Help your child to create short phrases or sentences to request for items to put in the snowman. For example, I want scarf or I want a blue button.
Your child will love this gingerbread craft activity. The stickers are perfect for working on spatial concepts with your little one. Have your child tell you where he wants to put the sticker before doing so. You can help your child by providing his with options (Do you want to put the dog next to the house or under the tree).
Work on requesting with your child with these fun winter beads! Have your child tell you which bead he wants next for his bracelet or necklace (I want a blue mitten). This activity is also great for fine motor skills!
This snowman frame is fun a keepsake craft! Have your child request for stickers to put on the frame (Ex. “I want a snowflake”). If your child is working on a speech sound, you can also give a sticker to put on the frame after he practices a word with his sound in it!
