TP Tube Trees
Save a couple toilet paper rolls to make trees! Crafty Morning has compiled a whole bunch of different styles you can create!
Paper Cup Flowers
The first step to creating these paper cup flowers from How Wee Learn is to swirl paint around the inside of the cup with the aid of a small rock. After that you just cut and unfold the "petals."
Yogurt Cup Wind Chimes
All you need for this super cute (and beautiful sounding) craft is the following: string, wire string, yogurt cups, jingles bells, clear polish, duct tape, and a small nail to poke a hole in the cups. Then just string them together by following these instructions from Frogs, Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails.
Snow Painting with Markers and Water
This is a great way to celebrate a snow day! First draw a picture on the snow with markers (as How Wee Learn advises, leave some space in between because the markers will run once you do the second step). Next, just spray the picture with water to create a tie-dyed snow look!
