    Winter Clothing



    Songs, Books, and Stories

    Special Activities


    We wear special clothes to keep us warm in the winter.

    We will make a list of the clothes we wear to go outside in the winter.

    Under My Hood I Have a Hat by Karla Kuskin

    “It’s Snowing, It’s Blowing”

    We will dress flannel people with winter clothing.


    Boots help keep our feet warm and dry in the winter.  Boots come in pairs.

    “Pass the Snowball Round and Round”

    We will play a game of boot freeze to music.


    We wear big winter jackets to keep our arms and body warm when it is cold and snowing.  Jackets usually button, zip, or snap.

    “It is Snowing”

    We practice fastening different kinds of jackets.


    Mittens or gloves are something we wear on our hands to keep them warm when it’s cold outside.  Mittens come in pairs.

    Missing Mittens by Stuart J. Murphy

    We will measure how many mittens tall we are and match mittens by size and color.


    Sometimes we add lots of layers to clothing to keep ourselves warm.

    We will work on our winter clothing bedtime book take home.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will become a clothing store and for art play we will paint with textured mittens.  We will use tongs to fill mittens with cotton balls in the sensory table and we will build snowpals with cardboard boxes for construction play.  For small motor we will match mittens and hang them with a clothespin from a clothesline.  For large motor play we will shake mittens on a parachute.
