Easy & Frugal Holiday Learning Art Projects for Kids

Looking for some frugal Holiday art projects to keep your kids busy? Unfortunately, snowy, cold weather is coming and during these winter months, most kids (especially mine) love to run wild all over the house.

We live in Michigan so we are no strangers to snow and below freezing weather. There are times, we are cooped up inside and are literally going stir crazy. Therefore, it is nice to have a project or two up your sleeve to keep your babies occupied and give you a break from the constant energy a bubbling toddler can fill your life and house with. Nonetheless, art projects will give you a break from chasing them from room to room for a while!

Fortunately, there are many ways to entertain your kids that don’t involve a screen. Moreover, here are a few learning art projects I’ve tried with my two-year-old and four-year-old this year! (Update: they are now three and five but we will do them again this year!)

The supply list is short…All you need is construction paper, markers, and glue. (I love Target’s Up and Up brand for these products). Target’s store brand is usually cheaper than the name brand art supplies and works just as well.

Nonetheless, my favorite kid’s art projects incorporate learning. (I was a¬†teacher for 13 years.) So the three projects below help teach letters, shapes, and name recognition. Not to mention, your kids will have¬†fun, fun, fun!!

Just follow these instructions below and you are good to go!! After completing, hang them up as Holiday decorations and enjoy a cup of cocoa while they sit still!
