This month we are guiding our activities towards winter and christmas things.. Here is the start of our new shelf activities.........
Here I cut up cinnamon sticks into small enough pieces that they can fit into the snowman on the ice cube tray.... The kids then practice using the tweezers to pick up the pieces and put them in.. and of course theres always the added fun of smelling each piece which seems to be their favorite part :)
Because my kids all seem to be super big into tweezers and things I set up a second game using them this month. In this game there are red and green bells and they need to be separated into two little metal containers
Dollar store find! Everyone always loves tic tac toe :)
I took old easter egg halves and attached bells inside of them using pipe cleaners which also make the handles. Half of the bells I took out the piece inside that makes them jingle so the kids need to separate them between jingly bells and silent bells.
The other day we also did a great activity to make snow flakes. I cut out the snow flakes from paper first and then we taped them onto a white piece of paper together. I then gave them a sponge and black paint so they could sponge overtop of all of the snowflakes so that when we took them off we ended up with white snowflakes in a night sky :)
I love these little books.I picked them up recently second hand and the kids look forward to this every day. there is a book for each day before christmas and as an added bonus, each one is also an ornament for the tree. It has become part of our circle time every day to get our new book and read it before putting it on the tree.
This is all juts the start of our christmas fun.. Hopefully I will have more activities to post soon!
