Snow Day Craft Ideas! - Westport Moms


Easy crafts for snowy days
A little active play can go a long way when everyone is stuck inside on a snowy day. Get kids moving with this snow day ring toss game.


  • Empty Pringles can
  • Colored felt or construction paper
  • Glue
  • Paper plates
  • Snowflake sequins
  • Scissors
  • Rice


  1. Wrap colored felt or construction paper around the empty Pringles can and glue it in place.
  2. Glue snowflake sequins to the can for extra decoration.
  3. Fill the can up with rice so that it doesn’t tip over, then place the lid back on top of the can.
  4. Cut the center out of several paper plates. Kids can draw on the plates or write their names on them. Toss the plates and try to get them to land around the Pringles can.


  • Fruit Loops
  • Paper
  • Glue
  • Markers or crayons
  • Cotton balls
  • Begin by having kids draw the outline of a rainbow on their paper.  If your children are younger you can draw the rainbow outline for them.
CEREAL RAINBOW: CRAFT FOR KIDS (great for all ages!) #kidscrafts #rainbowcrafts #kidsactivities
  • Have kids cover the rainbow lines in glue, and then the real fun can begin!
  • Give them a large bowl of Fruit Loops, and they can have lots of fun sorting the cereal colors and placing them onto the rainbow lines.
Rainbow Craft for Kids
  • This craft is great for reviewing colors & color sorting, and you can sneak in a bit of early math concepts, too!
  • Once their rainbows are complete, you can glue a cloud to the end using cotton balls.
I gave Rosie and Jewel a large bowl of Fruit Loops, and they had lots of fun sorting the colors and placing them onto the rainbow lines
This simple craft keeps kids busy for a while, and they are really proud of their artwork after they are done.  Once the cereal rainbows are dry, hang them on the wall to add a bit of color and sunshine to your indoor play space.
