Here's what you can find on our shelves this week:
1. Gingerbread playdoh work. I used this recipe, from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle and it turned out really well, although I used more spices than the recipe called for. I provided a rolling pin, muffin tin, and come cookie cutters, plus a few beads and sequins for gingerbread man decorating, and the kids helped themselves to some great fine motor work.
how we made it here.
For my younger daughter, age 21 months, who just started pouring activities because she wants to be *just* like her big sister, we used some Christmas colored pom poms as a starting material, rather than rice. She loved it!
which we created last week.)
3.We used Christmas colored pom poms and buttons for sorting and tweezer transfers, as well. (Ben, age 6, worked on tweezer transfers with the buttons, Ava, age 3, worked on tweezer transfer with pom poms, and Eleanor, age 21 months, worked on sorting colors.)
which you can read about here. This Christmas tree is a sample of a design that I created, and the kids imitated using the boards.
