I had so much fun creating these 9 Montessori Winter activities for my toddler. He worked on all of these repeatedly so I thought I would share them all with you.
Pom Pom Transfer
Ryan loves to use tongs right now so I picked up these festive pom poms from Hobby Lobby so he can color sort or sort by size.
Arctic Animals Matching
This one is totally new for Ryan. He has a 2 piece dinosaur matching puzzle that he loves so I thought we could try another matching activity. I took the Arctic Animals Toobs and found a matching printable set of cards on Etsy and laminated them. He was so proud of himself when he finished this the first time.
With the cold weather, I decided to put our sensory bin inside rather than in our Ikea FLISAT which stays outside. Ryan played with this one the minute I put it together. It has red and green sizzle, a handful of jingle bells, festive pom poms, and some wooden beads. I added a pair of tongs and a bowl. All of this came from Hobby Lobby.

Snowflake Lever Punch
This one I’m super excited about. It’s super simple. Some strips of construction paper and a snowflake lever punch. I think Ryan will have a lot of fun with this one and it’s great at building fine motor skills
Holiday Matching Cards
Instead of language cards this month I decided to make matching holiday cards. I printed images off the internet of things we may see or that are associated with winter and the holidays. As always I cut them out and laminated them.

Fill the Ornament
This one I’m going to bring out after we get out Christmas tree. I got pom poms, red and green sizzle, and plastic ornaments from Hobby Lobby for Ryan to fill. This is a great fine motor skill and Ryan will have something he made to put on the tree.
Ginger Bread Playdough
Oh my God, this stuff is amazing. I cannot take credit for this recipe I found it on Pinterest. It was created by Lina on Hip2Save. I will link it here. He played with this for close to an hour and kept smelling saying mmmm. I definitely think we will be making more scented playdough. The small holiday cookie cutters are from, you guessed it, Hobby Lobby.
Stamps are always a favorite in this house. The small holiday stamps and washable ink are from Michaels and the little red and green stamps are from The Dollar Tree (total score).
Dot Sticker Pictures
Ryan loves these dot coloring pages from The Resourceful Mama. To change it up I thought we would try dot stickers instead of dot markers. As a side note don’t get Dollar Tree dots. They don’t stick to paper but will stick to your children’s furniture immediately.
