Easy Prep Winter Centers

Not only do these activities meet students where they are, but they also make learning skills fun and engaging! Students will smash pretend snowballs with hammers, and use play dough to make snowman shapes, feed penguins, build towers, write in sand, and so much more.

The activities use manipulatives you probably already have or can easily get. And the prep work usually only requires cutting along lines. I put everything I can in grids so that you don’t have to cut around lots of weird shapes.

Many of the activities require one mat that you can use over and over again for different levels or skills, so that you don’t have to use lots of paper or ink.

Everything has been created in a way that makes it easier for you. I want to save you time and make life easier for you!
