This is a delightful box set that will keep kids entertained. I love that it's educational while being fun at the same time.

 

Weather Craft

February 5th is National Weatherperson Day. The holiday celebrates the birthday of John Jeffries who was one of the first people to observe weather. Here's an easy weather craft kids can make to observe this day.

Cut a 6" x 1" piece of colored construction paper for each child. Have them pick out one of the free weather cliparts below. Print the clipart and cut out the designs. Glue one piece of clipart at the end of each piece of construction paper.

Have kids write their names or an adult for them. Each child now has a personalized weather bookmark.

Mardi Gras Mask Craft

Masks are an important part of any Mardi Gras celebration. Below is a link to a free Mardi Gras mask template. Kids can color and decorate the masks with items such as sequins and feathers. I would be cautious about using any form of glitter because the glitter can flake off and get in kids eyes.

Valentine's Day Cookies for Kids

Kids love cookies and baking Valentine cookies with kids is a fun activity. Not much of a baker? It doesn't have to be a problem. Pillsbury makes a frozen cookie dough Ready to Bake Hearts which are round cookies with Valentine hearts in the middle. Not only are they simple slice and bake cookies, they also taste really good.

Another idea is to make some simple sugar cookies, cut them into heart shapes, then add colorful frosting and toppings like in the photo above. Otherwise, check below for some Valentine's Day cookie recipes.

The month of February celebrates George Washington and Abraham Lincoln's birthday, along with President's Day. Here are some fun ways to celebrate.

George Washington Coloring Pages

George Washington Craft

Here's an easy and practical craft. All it takes is an empty coffee can and some construction paper. Cut construction paper to fit around the can. I suggest red or blue paper to keep it patriotic. Print out the clipart of George Washington above and paste it on the can.

You can leave the can plain or kids can further decorate it by drawing pictures on the can or putting on patriotic stickers. Kids now have their own can to keep their craft supplies in or anything else they would like to store.

Here's a fun way for kids to learn about the Presidents.

Polar Bear Crafts

February 27 is International Polar Bear Day. This is a great day to teach kids more about polar bears. For example, the polar bear is the largest land carnivore. They can run around 25 mph. Their only predators are humans and they spend most of their time in the water.
