Christmas Pom pom push activity
This Christmas Cardboard box activity was very simple to make.
Here are the steps I took to put this simple activity together:
I drew a tree onto a sheet of paper calculating that it fits on the box.
Then, I drew different colored dots onto the sheet of paper and Christmas tree template.
Place this sheet onto a cardboard box.
Then, tape down the sides of the sheet of paper onto a cardboard box.
Use a craft knife to create holes on the “ornaments”.
This will allow for a fun fine motor activity of pushing through the pom poms into the correct color.
Voila! You’ve created an epic cardboard box activity for learning about colors while gaining the benefits of fine motor play.
The best part about this is that you can open up the box and remove the pom poms so your LO can play and learn on any given day!
Christmas Activities for Toddlers
If you are looking for a fun and simple learning activity for toddlers, this is it!
As always supervision is advised as the pom poms are smaller items.
But, this is a great way for practicing about colors and counting for toddlers.
Christmas Activities for Preschool
Preschoolers can practice all that toddlers learn and even more.
Instead of working only on 1-5, they can practice counting from 1-10 or 1-20.
This is a wonderful way to practice counting while learning through play and gaining the benefits of fine motor play.
Another fun way for littles to learn is to practice saying aloud the colors as they add the pom poms into the box.
This will allow for LO’s to practice learning their colors much quicker and in a fun way!
Christmas Tree Craft for Kindergarten
For a more advanced approach, kindergarteners can practice adding and subtracting with a set of two different colors.
Open the box and count the two colors in total.
This allows for kindergarteners to visually see how two different colors make up one amount when added together.
