Well, the festivities have continued. Here are some of the activities we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of weeks…
Polar Express Small World Play
You may remember that we enjoyed this last year too…
I set it up on a table this time though, as they wanted to keep the Christmas World from last week.
Counting, Number Recognition and Pattern Work with Festive Erasers
We actually did this a couple of weeks ago, but I forgot to include it in my post last week.
Threading Christmas Colours
… beads, laces, buttons and pipe-cleaners…
Finding Rudolph’s Nose
Sorting, Counting, Number Recognition and Pattern Work with Christmas Loose Parts
Counting, number recognition and mark-making in glitter…
Invitation to Weigh Christmas Presents
Again, something we do each year. These presents are now around seven years old! I covered the wrapping paper in sticky back plastic, which is why they’ve lasted so long.
Invitation to Twist Pipe-Cleaners and Thread through the Holes
Father-Christmas-Inspired Sensory Tray
More Christmas Table Top Activities
Some of which are repeats or follow-ons from activities we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of weeks…
Christmas Counting, Number Recognition and Fine Motor Skills
Decorating Felt Stockings with Buttons
Invitation to Hang Glittered Pine Cones
Playing with Christmas Erasers
They ended up in the construction area for a while!
Tweezers, Gift Bows and an Ice-Cube Tray
Simple Ordering Christmas Tree Puzzle
Not my idea – lots of examples of this online…
Using Fine Motor Skills to sort Christmas Coloured Buttons
Simple Festive Shapes Threading Cards
Sparkly Star Dough
I have no idea what I’ve done with all my other play dough photos from this year at the moment, so only have this to share with you.
You can see some of the other ways we’ve enjoyed ‘Christmas’ dough over the years here…
Creating Patterns and Counting Jewels onto the Kings’ Crowns
At last the Christmas holiday has arrived – I don’t know about you, but I am in need of a break! Have a wonderful time, whatever you are up to!
Thanks for reading!
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
