Winter Activities for Preschool

Who’s cooped up indoors and needs some winter cheer? Try one of these winter activities for preschool so your little one won’t feel like they have to climb on the walls to occupy themselves. This rain is keeping us indoors which is not ideal for my active kids, I guess we’ll have to find some way to burn off our energy. 

Today the kids built a fort that occupied them for the whole day, they even did their school work there. I think we’ll see another one tomorrow.
