Winter is almost here, and it’s time to have fun in the snow… or with a snow theme if you are somewhere where snow is rare. These snow activities for preschool are great for the classroom or home. My 2 and 3 year olds from years past have loved these winter activities, and I can’t wait to share them in my preschool classroom again this winter. There are snow themed crafts, snow sensory activities, process art and more in this great list that will help you plan for your winter preschool themed this year.
