Winter Popsicle Stick Pictures
Children will make the snowflake, snowman, mitten, and polar bear by placing the popsicle sticks on the mat. You will need white, black, and blue popsicle sticks. Colored popsicle sticks can be purchased, or make them by coloring popsicle sticks with a non-washable marker or liquid watercolor.
Winter Toothpick Punch Pumpkins
Your little learners will practice fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while having fun, using this toothpick punch printable.
Copy the wreath punch pages onto constructions. Gather some toothpicks and carpet squares.Carpet stores often give away these carpet sample squares for free. Or, you can just place the construction paper directly onto a carpet covered floor.
After placing the construction paper on the carpet, children will use the toothpick to punch holes along the black lines. Some teachers prefer to use the giant thumbtack pins. I prefer the toothpicks. If they break, children throw them away and get another. When they are done, children can hold their paper up to the light and see the light shining through the holes.
Play Dough Winter Animals
Children will create the penguin and snowman by rolling play dough and placing it on the mat. Print these mats and either laminate or place in a clear page protector.
