I’d really love some craft ideas on what to do in this colder weather that doesn’t cost a whole lot of money. Any other ideas also welcome!

Ask your question

  • Teach yourself to knit or crochet. Heaps of online tutorials and there is always someone giving away or selling yarn/wool fairly cheaply on the buy, sell, swap pages. Make a scarf, beanies, gloves etc!



  • Have you ever watched Play School? They have a useful box full of bits and bobs that they create lots of stuff with. I’ve recreated this box and my kids loved it



  • Indoor plants. Reading is my favourite and maybe getting into some online study.



  • I love planning. It’s creative, practical, fun and I get to be organised :)



  • I’ve been making a baby book for my little one. It’s been fun looking back at and printing photos of her to put in her special memory book.



  • I’ve recently got into Diamond Painting – very similar to cross stitch but using beads/crystals – sort of like painting by numbers but sticking beads on the canvas instead! Not many kits available locally as yet, but plenty on online and can be purchased quite cheaply too!



  • I like to color in or do puzzles



  • Knitting is a great Winter craft!



  • PLAY GAMES LIKE LUDO OR TAKE FOURETCDEPENDING ON AGE OF KIDS YOU PLAY TOO AS A GRAN THEY LOVE YOU TO BE INVOLVED. JIGSAWS DONE ALL TOGETER THESE ARE FUN AND ALSO GIVE KIDS EXTRA SKILLS, PUZZLES AND ALSO I SPY DO THAT IN CAR ON LONG DRIVE ALSO-LAST BUT NOT LEAST i WENT TO MARKET AND BOUGHT A CAKE, EACH PERSON TAKES A TURN AND ADDS AN EXTRA ITEM”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””an orange



  • Scrap fabric used to make photo frames.



  • I’ve recently taken up scrap booking. It costs as much or as little as you like. And I also use my scrap wool to knit things to donate to the local hospital, charity or dogs home
