20 Winter Activities and Science Experiments for Kids
We have had a lot of fun with all of these Winter activities. They all use common supplies found in your local stores. They are all pretty inexpensive with many of the materials able to be re-used for other projects. They are also easy to do at home or at school with a single child or a group of children. Themed learning activities are a fun way to take a regular activity and make it completely new again.
