Winter Activities the Whole Family Will Love!

Winter Activities the Whole Family Will Love!

I blinked and the whole year went by. I didn’t even have a chance to prepare and now here we are on New Years Eve with one more week before school starts and not a thing to do.

I’m not worried one bit though. Thanks to some amazing creative mamas we have a whole week of awesome planned for us and a makeshift winter wonderland right here in Texas!

Family Friendly New Years Fun: Great ideas for the last week of winter break!

Family Friendly New Years Fun

We’ll start with an indoor snowball fight!

Bonus points — making the snowballs is an activity in itself and we can hold on to them afterwards to have a snowball fight anytime we like.

Whip up a few of these giant snowflakes to suspend from the ceiling or maybe even hang in the yard.

Construct a few New Years crowns with sparkly pipe cleaners of our choice.

Then cover our windows in a snow flurry with these contact paper snowflakes.

Now that winter is in full effect, there’s only one thing left to do …

Make the switch to edible snowballs and then make some noise with these adorable diy shakers.

Now that’s my kind of New Years!

Happy New Years Everyone!
We’ve got some big things in store for 2014 and I can’t wait to share them with you
