It’s time to get creative with your fingers (and q-tips)! This simple winter tree finger painting activity is great for kids of all ages but I think preschoolers and kids in kindergarten will enjoy it the most! The q-tip snowflakes also make a fantastic fine motor exercise!

When it’s just to cold to go and play outside this simple project will keep them engaged for a while and chances are you have everything you need already at home!
What you need:
- sheet of blue paper
- non toxic white paing / fingerpaint
- black marker
Ideally you will need a piece of blue paper – you can use any color really but blue paper really works the best to create the winter scenery. You’ll also need a permanent marker to draw the tree (or you can have your kids make a hand print instead of drawing the tree), some white colors and a q-tip to make the snowflakes. If you’re longing for spring (or just don’t have any color paper) your kids can make a cherry blossom tree – we will be making it next week!

When it’s warmer outside be sure to bring some color to the winter by painting little snowmen! If that’s not colorful enough there are a ton of different other colorful winter activities you can try with your kids!
