Winter Preschool Activities, Winter Crafts, Lessons, and Printables

Winter activities, crafts, and games for preschool and kindergarten

Winter activities, crafts, lessons, games, booklets, and printables for preschool and kindergarten. 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 explore the winter season with your children.

And you turn yourself around.

You put your left mitten in . . .
You put your right boot . . .

You put your warm scarf in . . .
You put your warm cap in . . .

Build a snowman Snowballs, too,
Come and see what you can do.

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?
