Color Matching can be so much fun, especially when you change up what your child is used to. This month we are using bows bought at the dollar store to match these cute Donkey cards.

This is so much fun! It even brings a sensory experience into the learning, because children just love to play with the bows.

We love using these sweet printables. I laminated them and added the Melissa and Doug Shape Puzzle pieces to make it a complete activity. Montessori Inspired activities work wonderful. They are fun,  yet the children really get a lot out of them.

Miss. Bells shape activities started here with Teaching Shapes Through Play. Shapes can be just as much or even more fun than colors. Depending on who you ask of course, but both are great.

Moving on to some letter work we added a sorting game for the letter J. This time of the year J is for Jesus. Before you start this activity you may want to talk about Big J, little J (uppercase/lowercase) and the differences between them. Even if your child is familiar with them, it is always a good thing to share a few minutes of looking at the cards and looking at the differences.  Our Baby Jesus shape cards and the Letter J printable can be found for free on Confessions of a Homeschooling Mom.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these activities as much as we did using them. Now it is your turn to enjoy a few new holiday activities. Do you have a favorite? I’d love for you to share it with us. Please leave a comment or visit me on Facebook so we can chat.

 If you missed our Gingerbread Baby Activities or The Mitten Winter Activities you’ll want to head over there now. They were absolutely wonderful. Pair all of these with a few great winter books  and some fabulous Holiday Sensory Play  for a month of absolutely perfect Christmas activities.

At the end of the month everything (except anything edible) can be stored safely away until next year. Thanks so much for spending part of this busy time of the year with us. We truly appreciate you.
