Polar Bears, Penguins, and Snowmen! Winter Seasonal Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten

Winter by James Jordan on flickrAlthough I’m not much of a cold-weather person, winter crafts are fun: love those polar bears, penguins, and snowmen!  Here are lots of ideas to keep you and the kids from going crazy from cabin fever over these last two weeks (or so) of winter.

If you like the book The Mitten by Jan Brett, you may also enjoy my post: The Mitten by Jan Brett – Preschool Lapbook Resources.  We made our lapbook about a year ago, but my daughter still likes to play with it once in awhile!

You’ll find links to fun printables, mini-books to color, a matching game, a listening game, and more.  All the printables are free – you just need scissors, glue, a file folder, a computer printer, and a few other basic supplies.  Click here to see the post!
