While we are busy preparing for Christmas, we have been learning with these cute trays! This time it is counting while working on fine motor skills too!
Like the Fine Motor & Sorting Christmas Trees Tray, we used pompoms, a tweezer and a felt Christmas tree cut out, together with a dice.
To play, the dice was rolled to get a number. Then, that number of pompoms were added to the tree to decorate. This was done a few times to get a lot of pompoms on the tree. (My child likes linear, lol) Extend by counting the pompoms: how many pompoms do we have altogether?
This learning activity is such a fun learning tool for your preschooler or kindergartner during Christmas time!
Extend this activity by having two children play together, each with an identical tray. Add a competitive component, saying the first tree that is full, wins, or the first tree that is empty wins.
