There are a few reasons to make children’s games this holiday season. First of all, you might need a last minute gift idea, and these projects can be made relatively quickly (and with supplies you likely have on hand). The second reason is because you are going to have children home for winter break, and they need something to do! I’ve collected some DIY kids’ game ideas for you just for these reasons. Some of them can only be done by an adult, but several of them can be done with parental supervision. One of my favorites is this DIY popsicle game, which even comes with a free download (click through to the site). You are going to love these ideas, I promise. They are so creative!
