Winter Break Family Crafts, Activities and Ideas To Fight The Boredom

Here we go! Two glorious weeks home as a family. If, like me, you are expecting a fair amount of downtime,  do yourself a favor and plan for it. Below are some of my favorite family crafts, activities and ideas to fight boredom during those cold winter months stuck in the cave that is your home. 


Feed the birds! 


 A Bird Feeder made of crap already laying around the house is a fun, easy project.  Get creative. 




Salt Stepping Stone. Make one every year to create a footpath. Oh so cute! 



Salt dough recipe:

1 cup salt

1 cup plain flour

Half a cup of warm water
Mix together in a large bowl and knead it until smooth and stretchy. This last part is important otherwise the dough remains sticky and quite granular from the salt. If it is still too sticky add a bit more flour, if too dry and crumbly then add a tiny touch more water.

DIY Candy Ornaments!



Build a DIY Stick Christmas tree with things found at the park or in your backyard. All you need is twine.
