Hi everyone! I wanted to share my Preschool Christmas Activities for this year! We’re officially on break for school now, but we’re still having fun with preschool games, Christmas crafts (don’t worry, I’ll share!), holiday baking, Advent activities and Christmas Around the World! (I know, not really a break huh!)
So here’s what we have going on for Preschool this month:

Roll a Christmas Tree: The game is simple, cut out the pieces (they’re on pg2 not shown here). Roll a die and place the piece of the puzzle indicated by the number rolled. Its a fun way to practice number recognition skills! I like these fun Giant Soft Dice
Candy Cane Counting: You can laminate these then write the number in the box, or if your child isn’t quite ready for writing, they can use the little number tiles on the last page.
Large Floor Numbers: I made these large floor numbers so that we can play a hopscotch type game. I call out a number and she jumps to it! You could also have them put the cards in numerical order. Today, she put them in a row in random order then said the number as she hopped on each one. These go from 1-20 for my K4 kiddo!
Ornament Number Cards: I use these with either mini-clothes pins, colored paper clips, or put a hole in them and have her attach chain links to them. Whatever you use, just have them put on the correct amount for the number on the card. These are also good for putting in numerical order. We put the correct amount of dominoes on each card based on its number.
Christmas Pre-writing practice: I laminate this and use with Expo Dry Erase Markers for pre-writing practice skills.
Christmas Star Counting: Simply count the ornaments on each tree, then place the correct star on top!
Candy Cane Lacing Card: Laminate and cut out then hole punch every inch or so. Use yarn or shoe laces to practice lacing skills!
Scavenger Hunt: Fill your box with things that represent Christmas Time!
Christmas Magnet Page: I use this with a cookie sheet and these pom-pom magnets I made from pom-poms and self-sticky magnets from the craft isle in Wal-mart. I also use these magnets from Amazon: Power Magnets, 0.75 inch Diameter, Assorted Colors
Candy Cane Poem and coloring page: Read the cute poem about Jesus and color the candy cane!
Christmas Cutting Practice: Print on regular copy paper then practice cutting along the lines provided.
Christmas Color By Number: Using the color key, color in the tree!
Christmas Do-A-Dot Page: We use Do-a-Dot Art Markers with this!
Christmas Pattern Activity: Use the game pieces to complete the pattern activity.
Candy Cane Color puzzles: Cut out each candy cane, then cut them in half for a color matching puzzle. Make sure to discuss colors of each candy cane when done!
Candy Cane Size Sort: Cut out each piece then put in order, smallest to largest.
Christmas Puzzle: Laminate and cut along the lines for a fun preschool puzzle.
Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas Season!
