You know we love getting crafty. As the kids get older it’s fun to create crafts that are a little more challenging. No matter the time of the year crafting is an easy way for kids to get creative. People like to complain about the winter. It’s too cold, too dark and too snowy. I say that’s silly! Winter is a beautiful time of the year and these cool winter crafts for tweens will have you and your kids celebrating all that winter has to offer.
