As the temperatures are dropping (it’s in the low 30s where I live right now), I am thinking of all the activities I can add to our winter unit! I found a fun collection of 20 winter crafts for preschoolers that I wanted to share with all of you. Actually, older children would enjoy them, too!
If you are a parent, make a pot of hot cocoa for the kids and settle down at the kitchen table with your kids. Have fun making these winter crafts! (They also work great for play dates!)
