Experiencing a child’s first real winter can be such a fun memory of childhood. Here are 30+ Winter Themed activities to do with your child to encourage them to learn about the changes that happen during this season.
Winter Activities for Kids
Last week was a sure sign that winter has arrived across the United States with freezing temperatures reaching all the way down to Florida with the Polar Vortex. It made me start to discuss winter with my children and have a little bit of fun with the themes of Snowmen, Mittens, Ice, Snow and Snowflakes.
I took a peek at all the ideas shared on the After School Linky and clearly I wasn’t alone in my cold thoughts.
Here are some of my favorites that your child may enjoy this week as we teach our children about Winter.

Great round up. We are having an extremely sunny winter – worried about draught 🙁 We love to spend time outside or read/play games when it rains.
Thanks for hosting
