Here’s a quick and easy card that will be treasured by parents everywhere. I made it into a handy printable template so all you have to do is print it out and get little hands busy!

Each card is unique! Encourage children to use whatever colors they want. It helps to provide a wet wipe so they can clean one color off their finger before choosing another. 2-4 year olds created the cards below. I assisted them with the glue and glitter for the stars.

The kids were so pleased with what they created and I’m sure they will be parent favorites!

Recycled Can Lid Snowman Ornament

Sometimes while I’m working, I have an idea. I was washing out tomato paste cans and thought, “What could I use these for?” Any early childhood education teacher or child care provider thinks of this on a continual basis – nothing gets wasted, except the food you cook for those kids. Just kidding. Sort of. Then I thought, “A snowman!” as I lined them up on the counter. Finally I got to this project that was forming in my mind.

Winter Wonderland Paintings

This post contains an affiliate link to Discount School Supply.

Our beautiful Winter Wonderland paintings are just simple paintings at the easel, but the experience offers so many benefits for young painters! This activity goes along with our Mother Goose Time theme this month.

Winter Wonderland Paintings

Offering a variety of colors allows for creativity exploration in color mixing. Working at the easel is vertical surface work that provides many developmental benefits.

Open ended materials and free time to create builds a healthy self concept. Doing it “myself” allows for trial and error.Winter Wonderland Paintings

Beautiful work to display on our walls for the winter months!

Sometimes we think art needs to be big and complex, but really, it’s the experience that matters. And what beautiful results from just simple materials!  Our Mobile Art Rack seen in the pictures above is from Discount School Supply. We also use it for our activity trays. Love it!

Trim the Tree Dramatic Play for Preschoolers

Trim the Tree Dramatic Play for Preschoolers - Share & Remember

One of our centers this week is Trim the Tree Dramatic Play. This super fun and festive activity is not only dramatic play but works on fine motor development. In the pictures you can see how hanging the small objects onto the tree works the small hand muscles and promotes eye hand coordination.

Trim the Tree Dramatic Play for Preschoolers

Needed:

  • small tree – craft store
  • small non-breakable ornaments – ours are from The Dollar Tree
  • string of beads – ours were necklaces that are taken apart
  • bells
  • tray

The girls also found some curling ribbon in the Holiday Wrap Cutting Bin so they put some ribbon on it too, which is a great idea.

Trim the Tree Dramatic Play for Preschoolers

Decorating a miniature tree is one way for children to experience the holidays in a hands on way. They use the tree when playing house or just stop in for a little tree decorating during free play time.Trim the Tree Dramatic Play

Its not always so pretty and it tips over and things get tangled, but isn’t that real life??

Trim the Tree Dramatic Play

Trimming the tree is always a favorite activity here at holiday time. I leave the tray out all month and vary the ornaments so there’s plenty of time for everyone to explore and get a chance to decorate the tree themselves.
