Preschoolers can have tons of fun with these sequencing activities. Talk about the “why” behind the “how to dress for winter” sequence. Why don’t we put our mittens on before our boots? Why don’t we put our boots on before our snow pants?

I bet you can make up some really silly scenarios to help your preschoolers see the logic behind the sequence. Download these free winter printables to get started!

This pack of sequencing cards and activities contains story cards, image cards, story/image cards, a sequencing mat, and a writing page. Each of these can be used individually, or they can be used as a whole set within a lesson.

Object Cards

I like to start out by introducing the object cards. Help your child name each picture. Then, see if they can guess what order to put the items on when they get dressed to go outside.

Story/Image Cards

Next, try the story/image cards. There are five of these. They feature a sequence step and an image. See if your preschoolers can put them in order. Then, read the sentences and see if they want to make any changes to their sequence.

Story Cards

Finally, I like to use the story cards with the image cards. I read the story cards aloud and have students put the image cards in order as I read each clothing item.

Sequencing Mat

My favorite part of this pack is the sequencing mat. I cut out the five sequencing cards, and put them in random order in the bottom row of boxes.

Then, read (or have your kids read) the story and put the sequencing cards in order.


Fill your book basket with a great collection of books about winter. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.

Snow Clothes – Describes the clothing kids need to play in the snow.

The Jacket I Wear in the Snow – Rhyme follows rhyme as layer after layer of winter clothing (“bunchy and hot, wrinkled a lot, stiff in the knee, and too big for me!”) is first put on and then taken off to the relief of the child bundled inside.

Thomas’ Snowsuit – Thomas thinks his new snowsuit is the ugliest thing he has ever seen in his whole entire life. When his mother, his teacher, and even his principal try to get him to put it on, his answer is, “NNNNNO.”
