Trying to keep little ones busy during the cold winter months can be hard. Use these great preschool winter activities and printables to keep your preschoolers busy from start to finish this year! They will be engaged, learning and having fun!
The key to keeping little ones busy is to have exciting and fun activities! The other important way to help keep them active and engaged is to have lots of different activities. As we all know, little children do not have a very long attention span. If you can switch out your activities when they start to lose interest you will be able to keep them engaged longer. The longer they are engaged, the more they can learn! These fun activities are also easy enough for them to do on their own once they understand how to do them.
I’ve incorporated many different key preschool skills in these winter activities. The skills vary from color matching, handwriting skills, patterning, shape identification, and much more! Each page offers a great opportunity for your child to learn and have fun!
Here are a few sample pages for you to look over and ideas to go with them. Some of the pages allow for a variety of ways to use them. All of my printables are FREE if you are a subscriber.

These snowmen are ideal for a fun matching activity. Print on card stock, laminate, and cut them out. The children can match the hats to the correct colored snowman’s buttons.
In this activity, the children can use a pencil, marker, or crayon to start working on their handwriting skills. They can follow the lines and increase their fine motor skills. These skills are critical to have before they begin to attempt handwriting.
In this activity, the children can circle, stamp, or color in the snowflakes. Then they can count how many they found and write the number if they are able to. I also have a “Snowman Search” similar to this one for you to download. The children will search for snowmen on that one!
This activity can be used in two different ways. It can be used with Do A Dot Paint Markers. The children work on accurately marking each dot with their Do A Dot Paint Markers. The other option would be to use pom poms. I like to have the children put a pom pom on each spot. However, they are to use Jumbo Tweezers to pick them up. It creates a fun motor skill activity and a little variation to the activity. There are several different Free Do A Dot winter patterns HERE.
