Catching fluttery snowflakes on mittens, building a humungous snowman, and having a splattering snowball fight are all activities little learners gleefully participate in outside. This inviting kids’ winter wonderland tablescape takes snowflake, snowmen, and snowball activities indoors for further snow-themed exploration.

Setting Up The Tablescape
Changing up the decor in our play kitchen is one of my favorite things to do. And little learners always eagerly dive into each new setup.
For this kids’ winter wonderland tablescape, a fabric snowman-themed tablecloth is a base.
The buns are the only real play food on the table.
A variety of loose parts add a dose of glam, and little learners can imagine them to be any number of foods. For instance, the foam snowflakes make good cookies to bake in the play oven. The large foam craft balls can be reimagined as snowball cookies.
And the smaller loose parts displayed in the snowman baking tin and scattered around the table could be candy.
A polar animal theme would work fabulously for winter pretend play too. Here’s a super fun penguin-themed tablescape by birdsparty.com.
