It is time to get in that Holly Jolly spirit my sweet friend! And what better way to get in that spirit than with a fun and simple (emphasizing that word SIMPLE) little Christmas themed learning activity each day?
I bring you my Christmas Advent Calendar!
Print this little guy off, pop him up on the fridge, and enjoy one simple (again … simple) Christmas activity full of learning each day in December.
These Christmas activities are full of learning in the areas of:
- phonological awareness,
- one to one correspondence,
- fine motor skills,
- sensory awareness,
- and more!
Each and every one of the daily activities are easy (which is a synonym for simple). These ideas are along the lines of:
“Find something Christmas-y that starts with the sound /s/ in your house”
“How many “la-las” are in the song, Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly?”
“There are now 10 days left until Christmas! Make a paper chain 10 links long”
You get the idea … nice and … (altogether now) simple.
With this Christmas advent calendar I am also including 6 adorable Christmas colouring pages. These pages include a Christmas stocking, little gingerbread house, Santa clause, snowflakes, a Christmas tree, and a Winter hat. All adorable and ready for your little ones to cozy in and colour.
When I was a little girl I would LOVE waking up first thing in the morning in December and opening that tiny window to my Christmas Advent Calendar, revealing that tiny chocolate, and gobbling it up!
My children are enjoying these same little chocolate Calendars this year (you know, the ones that are more wax than they are chocolate? yum). I am so excited to be adding in this little Christmas Activities Advent Calendar to their holiday memories as well.
Now they will remember that special morning chocolate AND a special smiling Christmas Mama doing a simple little activity with them to start each and every day.
And I will feel fabulous knowing that right out of the gate we are getting some solid, foundational skills practiced.
This is a win-win you guys!
OH and I almost forgot the best part … the smile I will get on my face knowing that I you and yours will be joining me and mine. And isn’t that togetherness what Christmas is all about?
You can grab your Christmas Activities Advent Calendar and the accompanying Christmas Colouring Pages for $3.50 right here. I hope you love them!
