I love the variety of winter math activities I have collected! Now when I go to plan my winter preschool curriculum, I can easily add these to our agenda. There are so many ways to add math to the environment, as I shared in my Everyday Math Play collection. Numbers can be explored in the sensory bin. Counting can happen with craft activities. Measuring and weighing is a fun science activity. Math can even take place during large motor play! I took all this into consideration when putting together this collection of 12 winter math activities for preschoolers.
