The winters can seem long when you are stuck home with toddlers and preschoolers, so why not embrace the weather and create some fun Snow Crafts for Toddlers. As the weather gets colder, you may start to see snow peeking through your windows so I have put together a collection of toddler winter crafts.
I tried to select crafts that are perfect for preschoolers and toddlers (children aged 4 and under) and simple enough that they can create most of the crafts on their own. Toddler snow crafts are simple, easy to make, and fun and engaging.
These crafts can be adjusted if you have older children. You can substitute materials or allow your older child to do more of the cutting or gluing on their own.
