It's cold outside, and time to bundle up in Winter Clothes.
These activities align with a Winter Clothes & Staying Warm in Winter Theme. This is a great week for building fine motor skills as children learn to buckle and zip their winter clothes.
This activity pack includes 24 learning activities to keep your preschool aged children busy this winter!
Use these easy to assemble activities to add to learning centers, create file folder games, or tot trays.
I have designed these activities to be used with simple manipulatives that you have laying around the house, or your classroom (Clothespins, Pom Poms, Etc.). Each pack contains a variety of activities that focus on some of the following skills: Colors, Shapes, Uppercase/Lowercase Letter Matching, Counting, 1:1 Correspondence, Patterning, Fine Motor Skill strengthening, and more!
Take a closer look at the included activities...

Roll & Color Winter Clothes
This roll and color game is fun to play with a friend or adult. Roll the playing cubes then color in the object on the page. Share one page or print one for each player.
Winter Clothes Dress-Up Rolling Game
This fun game can be played independently or with a friend!
Preschoolers roll the cube, then find the clothing item shown and place it on the mat.
**Teacher Tip: Many preschoolers have trouble remembering which items they should put on first in the winter. This activity could also be used to help students practice which items they should put on first!
This girl is ready to play in the snow! Roll the playing cube and add winter clothing to help her prepare for winter fun. (also includes the same activity with a boy)
Missing Winter Clothes
In this fun activity preschoolers examine the person on each mat to determine what clothing item they are missing. They then find the piece with the missing item of clothing to complete the picture.

This is a fun matching game for preschoolers to practice color recognition and sorting skills.
**Teacher Tip: Older preschoolers may enjoy using real buttons, provide a variety of sizes for each coordinating color for them to sort by size as well.
Fireplace Number Mats
Preschoolers can practice counting with one-to-one correspondence as they count up the number of logs in the stack under each fire. Then they can match-up the fire with the same number represented as a ten frame or the flame number.
Spin and Color Numbers Quilt Game
This game is such a fun way to support children learning all about colors and numbers.
Packing for Hot & Cold Climates
I think just about every preschooler I have ever met wants to wear their snow boots in summer and shorts in winter! Preferred style aside, preschoolers are learning to identify what clothing is appropriate for each type of weather. Use this activity to support their learning and perhaps encourage proper attire for the weather.
