Cold Weather, Creative Play


Mix up the kids’ winter gear with accessories that are equal parts playful and warm. Udoo Planet — launched by a toy engineer — makes four styles of stretchy, fleece hats that double as colorful puppets poised for imaginative play, for ages 5 & up. Complete the look with cozy mittens that convert to an array of characters, ranging from barn animals to favorite pets. ($11.99- $14.99)




When it’s too chilly to head outdoors, channel kids’ creativity with wintry crafts instead. Mindware’s Glitter Snow Globe Kit lets mini artists ages 6+ create their own scene using a sculpting tool and a packet of tips and ideas. Oven-bake your masterpiece for a permanent finish, then add glitter and give it a shake. ($16.95)
