Winter Preschool Activities:

Discover Winter through Art




Winter preschool activities that start with a nature walk allow you to talk about the nature in your area and increase your child's observational skills. This is a great way to begin introducing science themes.

For this winter outdoor activity, grab a small bucket, put on your coats and head outside. During your walk find treasures to put in your bucket, such as, fallen leaves, seeds, nuts, dried grasses, rocks, etc.

Winter art activities encourage learning and exploration even during the winter months. So don't forget to check out the teaching tips after the project directions. The tips will help you expand this winter activity into a complete lesson for your child. It's so much fun and very rewarding to teach while having fun.

Creating winter fun for kids will enhance childhood memories and create new outlets for learning.

Remember...when creating with your child let them take the lead. Let your preschooler create in their own special way. This will allow them to develop their creative side which is a necessary skill for problem solving. Help them when needed of course, but do not take over. Yes, this can be a hard skill to master and I remind myself to do the same when I sit down to a craft project with my own child.
