For today’s post we’ve compiled a list of our favorite snow day crafts — we hope to give you some ideas to entertain the kiddos on snowy afternoons!

Homemade Finger Paints

These homemade finger paints are as easy to make as they are colorful. Your kids will love the hands-on craft and you’ll love the sensory learning and education skills associated with the activity. Bonus points? This recipe is made from all natural ingredients, so it’s safe for the toddler-everything-in-the-mouth-stage too. We like that, and we know you will too!
