Winter-Themed Prewriting and Shape Activities

The stockings were hung by the fireplace with care…which is good, because I barely finished them the night before.

I’m not a crochet guru. I enjoy a small project here and there, but when I saw this pattern last year, I was determined to make enough for my little clan. I gave myself the year, but didn’t really make a go for it until talk of Thanksgiving was making itself around. 😉


Along with that project, I was able to put together this little binder of prewriting and shape activities for my little ones.

These wipe-off activity books are my younger kid’s favorite things to pull off the shelf when I need to work with Jovie on her studies.

They have a regular prewriting notebook and a fall-themed notebook, therefore, I thought I would go ahead and add a winter-themed one to our collection.



Prewriting exercises are great for building fine motor skills, teaching basic strokes of handwriting, and simply allowing the child to become acclimated to using a writing utensil.


I also added shape recognition to this binder, simply because we have been learning more of that recently in our other activities.






This is a small activity notebook.  I chose a durable 1/2 inch three-ring binder as well as, heavy weight, clear page protectors that could withstand the use of a three-year old.

I inserted the 30 page printable into the page protectors and enclosed them within the three-ring binder, and voila! Done!
