    Winter Clothing



    Songs, Books, and Stories

    Special Activities


    Warm clothes help keep us safe and dry during winter.

    Bundle Up! by Ann Morris
    “It’s Snowing, It’s Blowing”

    We will use winter clothing to play a “Guess What’s Missing” felt board game.


    We each have our own winter clothing to wear outside.

    Warm Clothes by Gail Saunders-Smith
    “It’s Snowing, It’s Blowing”

    We will make a list of things we wear outside in the winter and try on various pieces of winter clothing to take photos for a group book.


    Hats are worn to keep our heads and ears warm in the cold weather.

    Under My Hood I Have a Hat by Karla Kuskin

    “It’s Snowing, It’s Blowing”

    We will use bingo markers to decorate paper hats.


    Mittens or gloves keep our hands warm.

    One Mitten by Kristine O’Connell George

    “It’s Snowing, It’s Blowing”

    We will match mittens into pairs and measure how many mittens tall we are.


    Boots keep our feet warm in winter.

    Tracks in the Snow by Wong Herbert Yee
    “It’s Snowing, It’s Blowing”

    We will use clues to search for a hidden boot.  We’ll also match pairs of boots.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will feature a winter clothing store.  For art we will paint with texture mittens.  For sensory play we’ll fill mittens with cotton ball “snow” and we’ll build “Snowpals” with cardboard boxes for construction play.  For small motor play we will clip mittens to a clothesline and we will shake mittens on the parachute for large motor play.
