A classic picture book related to winter is The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. For many years, children and teachers have been delighted to read about Peter’s snowy adventures. It’s one of our favorites here at Pre-K Pages. Reading this book aloud is just the first activity that can be done. Use these snowy day activities to guide your preschoolers on their own winter adventures.
