Inside: An easy winter handprint craft you can do with your baby or toddler using this free printable mitten template.
Now that my kids and I are spending more and more time indoors as the winter weather draws nearer, I find myself singing a different tune, mainly Baby, It’s Cold Outside.
Ha! But yes, I’m not kidding. The frigid temperatures are keeping us inside these days and in need of new winter crafts and activities for babies and toddlers.
My 2.5 year old can never get enough hand painting — and that’s why I always have an extra stash of my favorite washable paint ready to go. We all know crafting with little ones tends to get messy, so having a reliable brand that washes easily is key!
Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen so many cute winter art ideas on the web and wanted to find more ways to remember these years with my kids. Because sadly, sometimes the big messy piles and projects made with love inevitably find their way into the trash can.
I needed another way to turn those little handprint crafts into keepsakes to lovingly look back on, whatever the season it may be.
The Baby, It’s Cold Outside Handprint Printable I created makes savoring those memories a little bit easier.
Simply click here to grab your printable, print it out and create handprints that fit right into these little mittens.
You can use regular printer paper or construction paper if that’s all you have, but to truly make it a keepsake, I recommend investing in a little sturdier stock paper like these that works with your printer.
You can hang them on the fridge or window, frame them or simply add them to your memory books.
Easy simple, fun to do with kids of any age, but especially for babies 6 months to a 1 and 2 year old tots and toddlers during the winter months.
