3 Year Old Pre-K Winter Activities

While we are slowly working our way through some purchased curriculum this year, I decided to also add in some themed activities that either go with the seasons/holidays or go with Archer's interests. Here are some of our Winter Themed Activities
winter fine motor
This tray had some pipe cleaners and some "winter" colored beads. He put the beads on to make a snowflake.
A tray with some pom poms and trucks. Not a hit last year, but this year he played with it.
The Snowman Soup Math activity was a big hit. He liked mixing up the ingredients and then we worked on adding them up together.
STEM
I set out this tray with various magna-tiles and some winter Toob animals and asked him to make some little houses for the animals. At first he stuck to mostly cubes, but I challenged him to use some of the other pieces too and he eventually branched out.
I found this cute little Penguin Emotions activity from Natural Beach Living. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how well he matched up the emotions.
Winter Play Dough
I got this cute little set of snowman accessories to use with playdough. There were enough that I thought about using them for math activities, but I never did get around to it. They were a big hit, though, especially the little hats.
He also had fun making playdough homes and tracks with his Arctic Toob.
I got out his seasons layers puzzle too. Now we did all of them, not just winter.
Of course, I got out all our winter books. Some he read, most he didn't (he's really into reading books with maps or flags right now and it's hard to deter him).
