Winter Nature Activities for Preschoolers

Have you headed outside to enjoy some fun winter nature activities with your preschoolers? If not, now’s the time to go explore the uniqueness of winter.

Whether you’re experiencing snow or just colder temperatures, winter has so many unique opportunities to see things in nature that you can’t see any other time of year. 

Look for Tracks in the Snow

First head outside and look for an area where the snow hasn’t been trampled down. Look under trees or near bushes. And study the area for tracks.

Rope Off an Area In the Backyard

Take some string and rope off an area in your backyard for your nature study. This area can be as small as a foot by a foot in size or a yard by a yard.

Set Up a Bird Feeder

One way to develop a love of nature in your children is to set up a bird feeder in the yard. Just choose one of these easy bird feeders to make with your children.

Walking around the neighborhood is a fabulous and easy way to start nature study with your children.

Walk Around the Neighborhood

Despite the cold, winter is a wonderful time to head outside for nature study. It’s easier to tell the difference between types of trees, attract birds to your yard, and find animal tracks as you walk.
