7 Wicked Winter Weekend Activities

Written by Eleanor Weeks

It’s a winter weekend, what shall we do?
Here are some great ideas for me and you,
From Crafts, scavenger hunts, sewing and more
There is so much we can play and explore!

1. Find Wonderfully Wintery Spiderwebs

Go outdoors and find a frosty spiders web… then have a go at making your own using PVA glue and silver glitter!

2. Make Your Own Puppet Show

Why not have a go at making your very own puppet theatre? Better yet, use up your leftover Christmas cardboard to get super crafty and creative!

3. Make a Bird Feeder

Create a bird feeder using an empty yoghurt pot, lard and birdseed, and then take pictures of the birds as they feed in your garden! Have a read of our bird feeder tutorial for more inspiration.

4. Make Your Own Puzzle

Create your own puzzles for some family fun! Stick a family photo, or a child drawn picture, to card and cut it into shapes.

5. Create a Campfire in the garden

Embrace the winter chill and create a campfire and toast some marshmallows to keep warm!

6. Create Shell Pictures

Collect shells and create fun pictures on the beach, or in the forest with stones and twigs!

7. Learn to Sew

Teach your child to thread or sew! For younger children, use cardboard with holes punched in it and string as thread.

Do you know any fun things to do in winter? We’d really love to know! Someone else might love it, and really want to give it go! If you’ve got ideas, suggestions or reviews, you can shout all about it on whatever channel you choose!
