Brrrrr!!! Winter is definitely here! It got down to the teens here today, which is exceptionally rare here in Georgia. So I thought it would be fun to feature some great winter activities for kids!
Winter is not my favorite season, not by far. There’s something about cold weather that just makes me want to curl up into a ball and refuse to leave my bed. But the kids love it and I want them to have a fun winter, even if I’d rather be hiding under the covers. 🙂
And that’s why I’m sharing the fun winter activities below! There are cute wintry crafts for little ones, winter-themed early literacy activities, and winter games that are perfect for throwing a snow day party with the kids!
