Get through the cold days of winter with these 5 fun DIY projects for kids to make!  In some cases, they will need your help. Work side by side with your child and enjoy each other’s company! Making a Panda lantern, some sweet trophies or an amazing up-home mobile could be little projects that  provide a good bit of fun for the whole family.

Wool (for the pom-poms), cardboard, paper… the materials are easy to find. And when the project is complete, you can play with it or use it for decoration.
