Homemaking

Christmas may be over, but Winter is still here! It may not snow here in Florida, but I know many families get stuck inside with their kiddos due to snow and cold weather. Below are a variety of fun and easy winter-themed activities that I look forward to creating with my two girls as well. Make sure you follow the attached links for the instructions for each activity.
