Here is a round-up of LearnCreateLove’s printable arctic animals. I will update this list as we do more, so be sure to PIN IT so that you can come back! […]

Hibernating Animals Round-Up

hibernatinganimals

Winter is well underway, which means certain animals in the world are hibernating right now. While Lorelai is still pretty young, she did show interest in learning about hibernation a few weeks ago when we found a snail outside, and then again when it was mentioned in a movie she was watching. I explained to […]

{ Cardinal Craft }

DSC_3630

Good morning! I have been holding this craft for a few months, thinking that it would best be done during the winter. Cardinals make me think of snow and snow makes me think of the abundance of cardinals (and other birds) taking up residence at the bird feeder on my parents’ back deck. Lorelai and […]

{ Snowy Owl Printable Craft }

023

Snowy Owls are so beautiful! I have been saving this craft for wintertime, and we finally got around to it yesterday. Lorelai was kind of disappointed that all she had to do for this one was paint on a couple of spots on the wings and assemble. I had meant to make some puffy snow […]

The Process

Snowmen are such a fun part of winter. Unfortunately, here in Texas, we don’t get snow… or at least not enough to make a snowman. I’ve always been a big fan of snow, even as an adult. I grew up in the countryside of Maryland, where there were plenty of photo ops and sledding hills. […]

{ Our Glittery “Snow” Play Dough }

Glittery "Snow" Play Dough

There are many fun and adorable versions of homemade sensory snow out there. I’ve been wanting to try many versions, but haven’t been able to get around to it. Lorelai picked up a icky stomach bug earlier this week and had to miss her Christmas party today. Poor girl – she has missed the Thanksgiving […]

{ Handprint Snowflake Craft }

Handprint Snowflake

I saw this adorable handprint snowflake project on what to do with children and knew immediately we would have to do it! Lorelai has been battling a tummy bug for the past couple of days and is finally starting to feel better. She asked to get crafty tonight and this was the first thing I […]

{ Printable Macaroni Penguin Craft }

penguin-004

Lorelai requested a macaroni penguin craft a while back. We finally got around to doing it yesterday afternoon after she got out of school. She did almost the entire thing by herself. She painted, cut, and glued down. I had to help with the yellow plumes on its head since they were a little tricky […]

{ Handprint Snowmen Craft }

Handprint Snowmen

I love how this one turned out. It was sooooo easy to do and it only took a few minutes. I saw this on Pinterest, but it was done on a blue Christmas ornament. I don’t have any plain large ornaments, so I switched the craft to paper. Cute!! Directions are simple: paint your child’s […]

{ Printable Frosty the Snowman Craft }

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman is such a loveable and classic Christmas figure. Watching the movie is a tradition for many families, including my own. Lorelai got to see it for the first time this year and she LOVED it. I knew that we would have to do a Frosty craft, so I went about making the […]

{ Printable Walrus Craft }

Walrus Craft

Can you say CUTE??? Lorelai was so excited to do this walrus craft! She chose to make him pink because A) it’s her favorite color, and B) because it would match the dress she was wearing at the time. =) Lorelai learned all about walruses and how they live and swim in cold oceans near […]

{ Polar Bear Craft }

Polar Bear Craft

I’ve been wanting to make a polar bear printable for a while, and what better time to do it than the winter? =) I surprised Lorelai with this craft tonight and – BONUS! – she got to do it with puffy paint! We haven’t used this kind of paint in a while… the last being […]

{ Winter Hat Craft }

Winter Hat Craft

It was pretty crisp and chilly outside today, so when I saw this Cozy Winter Hat craft, I knew it would be perfect. The original craft used patterns from a craft book and yarn. I didn’t have any colorful yarn on hand, or the original book, so I decided to make a quick printable so […]

{ Handprint Penguin Craft }

Lorelai and her penguin

Tomorrow is National Penguin Day! To celebrate here on LCL, Lorelai did a classic handprint penguin. No worries – we are celebrating tomorrow as well with the playgroup. I’ll put that craft up tomorrow afternoon/evening. =) We haven’t crafted since last week since I had some health issues come up this past weekend, so she […]

{ Popsicle Stick Snowflake & Stamps }

snwfl-049

We started this craft last night and ended up having to do it twice because I wasn’t thinking and added the glitter before the popsicle sticks were completely glued down and dry. I ended up shaking them all off when I went to dump the excess glitter – doh! So, we started over and Lorelai […]

{ Printable Snowman Craft }

:)

Here is the second craft we did today ~ a printable snowman! I wish it snowed regularly here in Houston so that we could make REAL snowmen! Lorelai is always talking about the stuff. It’s saddening to know she has NEVER touched snow before… I think a trip to see my family this winter is […]

{ Printable Penguin Craft }

Concentrating!

{ Download / Print this Penguin Printable } And last, but certainly not least, is the penguin. I love how he turned out! We’ll probably do this one again but with different colors. The whole crafting process didn’t take too long. Lorelai painted all three sheets. I cut one out while she painted the last, […]

Textured Snowman Craft

DSC_0025

So this was the craft I mentioned in my last post – the one I had planned on doing with Lorelai yesterday but didn’t. I woke up with a lot more energy today, so this one it was. Mayo actually suggested that we do a snowman because we’ve been doing too many Christmas trees, angels, […]
