Winter is one of my favorite seasons. I truly LOVE the cold and snow is a passion of mine. As soon as the temperature drops, all of the wonderfully cutesy Christmas activities start flooding the internet. But after the holiday, you still have 3 months worth of cold weather to fill with indoor child-friendly fun. These winter themed snowflake activities will keep your kids busy all season long. All 3 activities can be created with just 1 pack of foam snowflakes from the Dollar Tree, every mom’s favorite fun store!
