-old newspaper
-2 lengths of yarn string, each about 10 inches long
-decorating material(crayons, markers, paint, scraps of colored paper, google eyes, etc.)

2.Frosty Window craft ( for those of us living in winter in the northern hemisphere)

These really do look like frosty windows!

Supplies Needed:

Epsom salts
Warm water
Small container and spoon
Small paintbrush
Sheet of black construction paper
Colored construction paper
Nontoxic glue

Add 6 or 7 Tbsp of Epsom salts to ¼ cup warm water, and stir the mixture until no more salts will dissolve. Then using a small paintbrush, brush the misture over a sheet of black constructiojn paper (8 ½ x 11 inches). Allow the paper to dry overnight or place it on top of a floor heat register/vent. This will give it the frosty appearance. Mount on a piece of colored construction paper and then glue a vertical strip and horizontal strip right across the paper for the window panes.

3.Simple Bird Feeder Craft

Save those crusts of bread instead of throwing them in the garbage. Have your child poke a hole about ½ an inch from the top of the crust. Leave the crust out on the counter overnight to dry, then tie a piece of yarn or string through the hole. Take it outside and hang it on a tree-easy bird feeder. Your children will enjoy watching the birds come and eat from it.

Craft tip:If you have ever battled with trying to screw off the lid of a paint or glue bottle that was previously opened, try this... cut a small piece of plastic wrap and lay it over the opening of the bottle, and then carefully screw the lid back on. Not only will the lid not stick next time you open the bottle, the contents of the bottle will stay a little fresher.
