Quick Holiday Activities

I put together a few activities for James to do tomorrow. Each of these took me only 5-10 minutes to assemble. Easy peasy!

Tree Matching

I found this cute clip art on Microsoft Word, but you could use any clip art resource. You could even draw and color the trees yourself! Just need two of each picture, one set to act as a control chart and the other for matching.

Holiday Matching or Memory Game

(click picture for larger view)
This is slightly more challenging for little ones in that there's no control chart. They have to sort through both piles to find a match. We will do this activity on a mat so James has enough room. This could easily be adapted to a memory game by simply mixing the whole lot of picture together and turning them over face down.

Winter Sequencing

I bought these die-cuts at the local teacher's supply store for 50 cents, but you could use some of the clip art you created for the above activities (you'll just need to print a bit extra). You could also use stickers and attach them to cardstock, or you could use wrapping paper or again, you could draw and color your own pictures. There are LOTS of options. :)
