Winter Books For Kids
As any parent knows, reading to your kids is a great way to promote their literacy skills. But did you know that reading aloud to them can also help them in other ways?
Reading aloud helps to build bonding between parent and child. So the next time you’re looking for a way to connect with your little ones, try cuddling up with a good book! You’ll be doing them (and yourself) a world of good.
Below are some of our favorite winter-themed books.

Winter Crafts For Kids
Crafting is a great activity any time of year, but we especially love it during the winter when the kids are cooped up indoors and need to keep their hands and minds active.
Crafting not only keeps them busy and entertained, but will also hone skills such as critical thinking, fine motor skills, and creativity.
Crafting is a great way for kids to express themselves and adapt the project to be how they envision it. When they’re able to do this, it fosters their creativity and builds their self-confidence.
Walrus Arctic Animal Craft – We’re going on an expedition to see our arctic friend peeking out of the water! This fun paper craft comes with a free template so all you have to do is print, and the kids can get to cutting out the pieces and gluing them in place to reveal a walrus right at home!

Paper Plate Penguin Craft – The kids will be waddling like penguins after learning about these adorable winter animals! This is a simple and cute craft because it uses an everyday item – the paper plate. Grab the template so the kids can dive right in!
