Looking for the best winter crafts for 3 year olds? Printable crafts are so much fun for younger children, they love to use art and craft materials to make their crafts amazing. Also, think about how much they will develop their fine motor skills and build on their creativity.
What craft can a 4 year old do?
If you want to get your 3 and 4 year olds involved in crafting, it’s easy to do.
The crafts you choose should be straight forward and easy to cut, like easy round or square shapes.
Kids at that age are still building their hand and muscle skills, so you don’t want to make it more difficult for them to cut the pieces out.
Alternatively, you can cut the pieces out for the kids and have them glue to create their craft.
The next thing you want to do is make sure you’re showing them what the craft should look like.
For instance, this snowman head craft is a great use to work on fine motor skills and for the kids who are capable, patterning skills. Using simple cotton balls in a simple craft is a great way to get kids working with their hands.
I love combining crafts with learning skills.
Winter activities for little hands
Kids love to work with white paint, popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners and more. See these super fun adorable winter craft ideas below and use them with your students or kids.
I sometimes love to use puffy paint to make snow globes and these typically make for easy crafts, but this year I rounded up the most suitable winter crafts for toddlers in a fun way.
Grab this super fun snowman pattern craft at the end of this post!
Also these crafts aren’t Christmas themed and do not include a Christmas tree or nativity ideas only because I realise not all schools or families celebrate Christmas and sometimes, you just need plain winter themed crafts.
Kids will have a great time with these winter theme winter arts craft ideas.
Snowman math craft
This great craft is a perfect way to practice fine motor skills, it’s super easy peasy to make since 3 year olds will need help with cutting practice. It also has the added benefit of pattern practice.
I can use this craft in many ways because I can differentiate its use with older kids and younger kids.
Craft projects are fun to make because you will only need a few materials which you have on hand, then you can get to working during the winter months.
This perfect winter craft will only need the printable craft template (attached at the end of this post) and some colored pom poms, along with scissors and some crayons for coloring.
This is a perfect craft for 3 year olds because it can be used to make the pieces and put them together, OR it can be used as a pattern making activity to work on math skills.
All around, it’s one of the best great winter art projects to add to your arsenal.
