When Saving Time and Money Is Important and Quality Matters!

Winter Preschool Activities, Winter Crafts, Lessons, and Printables

Brrr! Winter is the coldest season of the year. It's a time for children to enjoy outdoor activities like ice skating, sledding, and building snowmen or indoor activities like making craft projects, curling up with a book by a toasty fire, baking gingerbread man cookies, or going to see a good movie like Happy Feet, an uplifting story about a tap-dancing penguin named Mumble. Give winter boredom the boot and learn with your kids about winter and build a snowman, create penguin crafts and explore the polar regions. Read the book The Mitten and enjoy our great selection of winter printables and other resources in our KidsSoup Resource Library.

Sock Winter Hats
Make winter hats out of single socks. Simply cut at the ankle, and glue to the top of a paper cup. Tie the end with yarn or ribbon for a perfect winter hat. Decorate paper cup with a face and hair.

Outdoor Snow Artwork
You need a cookie sheet, different colored tempera paint in cups, and paintbrushes. Take children outside in the snow and have children pack the cookie sheet with snow. Let them paint on the snow using the paintbrushes. Take a picture with a camera for a keep sake.

Cut a green pepper in half crosswise.  Let the children dip the pepper into white paint and press down onto dark blue colored construction paper.  Add glitter to the picture before the paint dries.

Winter and Snow Rhymes and Songs

Dance Like Snowflackes
(Tune: Are You Sleeping?)

Dance like snowflakes, dance like
In the air, in the air
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Here and there, here and there


The Winter Pokey
(Tune: The Hokey-Pokey)

You put your right mitten in,
You take your right mitten out.
You put your right mitten in,
And you shake it all about. (Shiver.)
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your left mitten in . . .
You put your right boot . . .
You put your left boot . . .
You put your warm scarf in . . .
You put your warm cap in . . .


Snowflakes, Snowflakes
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Snowflakes falling
One by one,
Time to play and have some fun
.Build a snowman
Snowballs, too,
Come and see what you can do.
Snowflakes falling
One by one,
Time to play and have some fun.

I Love Snow
(Tune: Three Blind Mice)

I love snow.
I love snow.
Soft, white snow;
Soft, white snow.
It falls on the ground so soft and white.
Sometime it falls all through the night.
Did you ever see such a beautiful sight
As soft white snow?
