Winter Wonderland Activities

Here's some of what we are doing for the next few weeks on our Winter theme:

Beautiful real snowflake pictures- matching game


I bought an image sheet from this fab Etsy shop called Piddix
Printed two and cut out the most distinctive shapes.
This is great for older children as it can be quite challenging if you want it to.


I laminated and cut out the rest to use for counting activities.


Counting cards.


Spooning/transferring winter sequins


Antarctic Animals 3-part cards from here.


Sorting Wintry beads


Using his iceberg stacker: he had to arrange the pieces in as many
different ways as possible.
He really enjoyed this.


Snowball soap surprises:
grate white soap, stick some "treasure" in the centre,
build the ball up with warm moist hands and let dry.
