There are so many winter activities that you engage in with preschoolers and which they will absolutely love and enjoy. You can be sure that these activities will include snow, snowman, snowflakes, and ice, too.
You yourself will enjoy doing this with your kids and it won’t feel like a chore at all.
Let’s check out some of the fun things you can do with your preschoolers right now!!!
Winter Craft Activity
Cut out a paper into the shape of a snowflake, and get your kids a few supplies that they’ll need to decorate it.
These supplies include:
- Sticker gems
- Pom poms
- Glitter glue
You can let your kids go wild with their imagination and they will have a lot of good time decorating the snowflake you just made them. This game is especially fun if your kids are having their friends over, they might just think you’re the coolest parent ever!
Building a Snowman
You have absolutely no reason not to think of this one. Everybody loves a snowman, and everybody loves building one.
If you’re lucky enough to have it snow in your area, then you already have most of your supplies. Gather your kids, make sure every one of them is well-dressed so they don’t catch a cold, and go outside and start building.
You will need some googly eyes and a carrot to make the eyes and nose of the snowman, but that’s about it. Your kids will have a lot of fun and will have the chance to build something with their hands, which can be very beneficial for their motor skills as well as they will learn a thing or two here and there.
White Snow Playdough
Making white snow playdough in itself is a fun activity, let along what you can do with it after it done and ready.
Let’s first check out the ingredient and the recipe that you’ll need to know in order to make the dough:
- 1 cup corn flour (cornstarch in the US)
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp cream of tartar
- 1 cup boiling (or nearly boiling) water
- Few drops liquid glycerin (not essential, but makes it even smoother!)
- Silver glitter- optional! (but so pretty)
- Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl
- Add oil
- Add boiling water
- Leave it to cool down for a while
- Knead until smooth and soft
- Add glitter and the desired scent
- Add corn flour if sticky
Now that you have your playdough ready, all you have to do is invite your kids and their friends over and start playing. There are infinite games ideas that you can do and they’re all so fun.
You can make a little snowman with the dough that you’ve made, or roll the dough and use it as small snowballs. You can basically go wild with this. It is advised you let the kids decide what they want to do with it.
If you want your kids to have fun, it isn’t that hard. Especially if you’re a resourceful parent who isn’t scared of putting their hands to work.
