Arctic Art and Crafts

Create the Northern Lights by adding food coloring to different bowls of condensed milk and allowing kids to paint with their fingers. Painting on shiny poster board adds a great look with the milk!

When teaching children about winter animals, I chose to specify on arctic animals. Teach the children about polar bears, penguins, arctic fox, etc. Have the children create their favorite animal.

Activity- make a home (an igloo) for all the winter/arctic animals.

Materials: white table cloth, scissors, black marker, small round table or desks put together.


using the black marker, draw squares on the white table cloth. Drape it on the table. Cut an opening big enough for a child to crawl through. Place the students’ pictures of their favorite animals in the igloo. Each child can go in the igloo to visit their favorite animal.
