8 Crafts to Celebrate the Winter Solstice

By Danielle |

Celebrating Winter!

Do you celebrate the winter solstice? Or as most people know it … simply the first day of winter. We do!

I remember when I was a teen we would actually have a small fire outside in our fire pit, roast marshmallows, and say goodbye to the mild weather and prepare for a long and cold New England winter. Oh, the joys of Connecticut!

While we had our first big snow in October this year, we have been pretty mild until this weekend when the temperatures dropped. Now my kids finally understand winter is here.

This week we are going to do a couple little crafts to celebrate the solstice. Something I want my kids to know, and celebrate as they continue to grow up.

Do you and your family do anything special for the solstice?
