Ideas for Using This Christmas Craft for Preschoolers
Have toddlers or preschool-aged children? They’re going to love this free Christmas craft. It is the perfect opportunity to discuss shapes, colors, and sizes. As you add an item to your paper sweater, name the item you’re adding, for example, “This is a yellow star. A big yellow star. Can you find a green tree? Wow! That’s a gorgeous green tree. What is your favorite shape?”
Allow them to engage with the activity on their own, too, quietly. You can always play my favorite holiday playlist in the background!
How to store your Preschooler’s Christmas Craft
Want to keep this activity around for a few years? I know we do! That’s why I’m laminating everything this year, and when we’re finished with it, I’ll store all the pieces in a large zipper bag, like these bags. Next year I’ll pull them out, add some contact paper to the wall, and let the kids create! I know this free Christmas printable will entertain them for several years to come.
