It’s officially official…
Tot School Tuesdays is here to stay at Mine for the Making and I am happy to be a permanent co-host with my sweet friend Vanessa of See Vanessa Craft. Every Tuesday we will share a tot/preschool activity on both of our blogs and we will have the linky party so that you can link up your Tot School ideas.
Today I am sharing the fun Christmas cards my daughter made for her friends using things we already had on hand.
This activity is a craft (art) and can also be included in the fine motor skills exercises.
You will need:
Markers, crayons, and/or colored pencils
Christmas cookie cutters
Mom needs to cut the construction paper into smaller pieces. I cut mine to fours. (Depending on the age, your kiddo can even cut the paper to practice scissor skills.)
Set up the table or craft space so that your child can easily get to the paper and coloring tools. We also have art aprons, so I make that available as well.
Model how to and assist with tracing the Christmas cookie cutters onto the pre-cut paper.
Let your tot/preschooler color and decorate the cards. You can even go crazy and bust out the stickers and glitter : )
I wrote “Merry Christmas. From:” on all of the cards and had my preschooler write her own name. Depending upon the age/developmental stage of your tot/preschooler, you can also try pre-writing your kiddo’s name with yellow marker and having them trace over it with a darker color (or a pencil).
Simple as that! My Luci is so excited to pass them out to her friends with the Beaded Candy Cane Ornaments she made.
Head on over and check out what Vanessa is sharing today and then link up your Tot School ideas!
