Preschool Winter Activities to Entertain, Teach, and keep you WARM!
Some fun winter activities like sledding or building a snowman provide memory making outings with our children. Unfortunately, for many of us with toddlers and preschoolers winter is a season that we dread.
There is... the bundling, the unbundling, the freezing temperatures, the dirty slush, and the lost mittens... that all make us want to find
indoor winter activities,
winter preschool songs,
to entertain our kids from the comfort of home.
preschool learning activities
with a winter theme are easy ways to combat cabin fever. You and your preschooler or toddler can have fun, learn, and create some wonderful crafts and memories (without freezing!)
Get your kids up and moving with inexpensive and fun
indoor winter games and activities.
We’ve all heard that childhood obesity is on the rise. During winter in colder climates it can be difficult to be physically active without paying for a lot of different museum memberships and kids classes (although those are great activities too.)
Learn how to build a snowman, ice skate, and have a snowball fight
all without leaving the warmth of home.
Help your child learn and create some easy
for preschoolers and toddlers. Using simple supplies like construction paper, cotton balls, white paint, and shaving cream and your preschooler’s imagination, the possibilities are endless.
Looking for a quick activity to distract your toddler from the TV or to avert a temper tantrum? Preschoolers and toddlers both love to sing and dance.
Winter songs and finger plays
are an easy, fun (and free) winter activity.
If you are still coming down from the holidays, why not teach your preschooler to be grateful for all of those wonderful gifts? Help your preschooler say thank you to gift givers. You can even
recycle Christmas cards
into unique thank you cards. Or create some easy
crafts and games for preschoolers
from your old cards.
Using a winter theme is a fun idea for teaching preschoolers about
and more. Winter learning activities help preschooler learn about circles (snowmen), the letter “S” (snow), science (what is snow and ice?), sizes (small, medium, and large circles make a snowman), and so much more.
Of course, the traditional winter outdoor activities like sledding, making snow angels, building a snowman, and ice skating are also fun and special winter activities for preschoolers and toddlers. Don’t forget the hot cocoa!
Have fun and stay warm!
