Preschoolers need a lot of active time each day. When stuck inside during the winter months we moms need some help with planning in fun winter boredom busters for preschool kids.
The good news is most hands-on activities will get your preschooler interested right away. I have quite a few fun winter activities to share with you so you and your child have fun, productive days – even during the cold winter months.
Winter Activities for Preschool Kids
This qtip painting activity is really popular on Pinterest! If you have not tried it, it is so simple to set up.
My children loved building with these DIY jumbo building blocks. They are perfect for multiple ages too.
This dry sensory bin activity is easy to set up and easy to clean up! That makes it a win-win.
If you have extra plastic ornaments on hand, or grab a few from the Dollar Store, you can turn them into a fine motor and counting activity. It takes 5 minutes to set this up!
Kids love to bake. And, yes, it makes a mess! Let’s face it, even baking without kids creates a mess. Let them jump in and help with pouring in ingredients and cutting out these fun holiday cookies.
Use those holiday cards – or grab a package of cardstock – and make handmade greeting cards for the grandparents or neighbors. Kid-made gifts are always special.
Practice scissor skills by making coffee filter snowflakes. Kids love the freedom to be creative.
This snow ball toss that can be done indoors is always a hit. My kids played this for a long time!
Try an ABC matching game busy bag for some quiet downtime.
These color sorting bags get kids moving and matching colors. Plus, the supplies are things you probably have at home already.
If you have the game Don’t Break the Ice, this is a fun switch to use it as a number learning activity.
Using a yoga mat to play hopscotch gets energy out when you cannot play outdoors.
I hope this whole collection helps you get through the winter months. A go-to list of winter boredom busters for preschool kids is all you need.
