Alphabet Christmas Tree Clothespin Craft
These little alphabet Christmas trees are a cinch to put together! We cut triangles out of green cardstock, wrote a letter on each one, and let our little ones decorate the trees! We added a clothespin to help them stand tall. Now your little ones can create an alphabet forest, spell words, or anything else you or they can imagine!
Candy Cane Snack
Bananas and strawberries make this candy cane snack a perfect healthy holiday treat!
Red and Green Bowtie Alphabet Sensory Bins
Bowtie pasta makes for a wonderful holiday sensory bin! To make it extra special, add color! To do this, first pour ¼ cup rubbing alcohol into a Ziploc bag. Next, add 5-8 drops food coloring. Then add 2 cups of uncooked pasta, seal the bag and mix until the pasta is evenly coated. Finally, dump the pasta onto a baking tray lined with a paper towel. Let dry several hours or overnight. Repeat this process for each color you want. Once dry, add to a bin with letters and let your little ones have fun exploring and learning!
Here’s another simple and yummy holiday treat! Give your child a few banana slices, pretzel sticks, and chocolate chips, and let them build their own snowman snacks!
Holiday Alphabet Game
This holiday game can be customized to fit any shape or theme, making it one of our favorites. Start by drawing an outline of a shape, such as a dreidel, snowman, or tree. Add circular stickers around the outer-edge of the outline, with designated “start” and “end” spots. Then, grab a die, game markers for each player (we used gumdrops!), and flashcards. On each person’s turn, they can choose an ABC See, Hear, Do flashcard (or homemade letter cards), say the letter name, the letter sound, and a word that starts with that letter. If they get them right, they roll the die and move that number of spaces. The best part is that you can change the rules and content to fit your child’s specific needs!
