Jingle Bell Club (Kitty Allen)
Kids get to sign their name as members of the “Jingle Bell Club” when they learn to tie their shoes. They also get a jingle bell on a ribbon to tie on their shoe laces.

Science -Winter Nature center
Materials:  magnifying glass, clip board, paper, pencils, tub

Let children look at the items with a magnifying glass.  Can they make a list of all the items they find in the tub?

Can they write descriptive sentences about what they find?

Gel Stickers

Free play on windows or a mirror. These can also be used on a cookie sheet.

Santa Chair Cover
Those of you who do flexible seating could use this as a special treat.

*Children could sit in the chair and write a letter to Santa.

A Coloring We'll Go
I am the last person in the world who would encourage coloring books over creative art, but the truth is that some kids just like to color. I was working with some child care centers years ago and my rules were no worksheets or coloring sheets and no screen time. I went into a teacher’s room and to my dismay there was a group of girls sitting at a table coloring. They were chatting and have a grand time. The teacher said, “They beg to do worksheets and use coloring books.” Oh, well! So, put a holiday coloring book and crayons in a center as a reward if children finish their work early.  It might entertain them and it certainly will do no harm.
