Your toddler or preschooler will love this sorting Christmas hats activity tray! A fun way to develop visual discrimination skills.
It is Wednesday, and out comes the Christmas tray activity! Every Wednesday up till Christmas, I’ll be sharing an easy-to-set-up Christmas tray activity like this Sorting Christmas Hat one! This week we are also joining the Toddler Christmas Activity Blog Hop, be sure to check out all the ideas shared there too!
So, the past two weeks I shared tray activities with Christmas trees: Sorting and Counting activities. Have you seen it?
So today it is sorting Christmas hats according to size: small, medium and large. A fun tray activity for toddlers and preschoolers to develop visual discrimination skills and vocabulary too.
Here is what you need to set up this activity:
- A tray like this one or 4 shallow containers if you don’t have a tray like this
- Red and white felt
- Small white pompoms
First, cut three sizes of red triangles. I cut 4 of each. Add strips and white and pompoms to resemble Christmas hats.
Add it to the tray, mixed up. Give the instruction to sort the hats by showing your child the different sizes. Place one of each size in each space provided for your child to copy. (I added the words small, medium and large just for explanation sake for adults, not the kids, but it is good to say the words so that your child can expand their vocab.)
Let your child sort the hats and count them too.
All hats are in the right place!
A simple Christmas learning activity any toddler or preschooler will love!
