I’ll be honest with you: There isn’t much to love in Minnesota in January. Too cold. Too frosty. TOO LONG.
The first months of winter are magical: high spirits, Christmas lights, Santa. Once we step into the new year, it all vanishes into thin air. Except for the white and thick coat that covers the ground.
Kids are the only ones not to lose their excitement about snow. But because it’s too cold to get outside and ride their sleds, they burn their energy by jumping on beds, climbing on tables…Can’t blame them. Being trapped inside drives me crazy, too.
February with its Valentine’s Day manages to take our minds off winter. Moms put on their creative hats and get kids involved in all sorts of Valentines crafts. Kids look forward to all the candy that’s about to come their way.
I love paper plate crafts because they are simple, use supplies that we have already at home and need no prep work.
