Winter Activities for Schools: KS1 & KS2

December 2023 - March 2024

Here at Busy Things, we have a selection of winter activities for schools. Children can build a snowman, design snowflakes, and write about what happens during winter. There’s even a British weather map that they can use to create a weather forecast, learning about our winter climate in the process.

Snowmen icon


Create a fantastic classroom display of snowmen!  Children can use a selection of snowballs to build a body and then add eyes, a nose and mouth, as well as a hat and scarf to finish him off.

Snowflakes icon


Children can easily use the paint and symmetry tools to make an amazing snowflake. Did you know that snowflakes have radial symmetry, meaning that they are symmetrical around their centres? 


Write about winter icon

Write about winter

Children can choose from two different templates and answer the three questions to create a piece of topic work about the winter season.

They can create an image using our drawing tools or choose from the beautiful images in our photo bank.

NOTE: Busy Things also includes projects for the winter, summer and spring seasons.

Write about the weather

Ask your children to write about a particular type of weather.

There are templates for nine different weather conditions, including; rain, snow, wind, hail, fog, rainbows, and thunder and lightning.





Weather maps around the world... Europe, Australia, UK

Children can create their own weather report using a range of weather symbols and also write some commentary.

We have a range of ready-made weather map templates for regions in the UK and across the world.

Ordering - Seasons

Ask your children to label the segments of the circle with the seasons, clockwise in the correct order. Get them to notice and discuss that the seasons progress in a cycle. Ask them to think about what happens to the plants and trees as the seasons progress and how the length of the days change.
