Are you looking for some easy and full-time entertaining activities for your toddlers and preschoolers? Here are some easy activities that don’t require much effort but keep the kids occupied throughout the day.
1. Christmas Sensory play:
The teachers at the play schools in Abu Dhabi look for creative ways to teach different senses to the kids. You can set up a sensory bin with a Christmas twist. The options are endless. You can color the rice with red and green to give it a Christmas touch. Take wooden alphabets and paint them, put glitters to give a festive look. Add pompoms, beads, feathers, snowflake confetti, red gloves, cotton balls, and candy cane.
2. Christmas tree decoration:
You can get a felt fabric Christmas tree in your classroom and ask the kids to decorate it with the ornaments. It is a nice way to involve the kids in the Christmas decoration. They can redecorate it with the detachable ornaments like snow, Santa Claus, jingle bell, hat, gloves, candy, etc.
3. Christmas puzzles:
Christmas puzzles are an amazing idea to keep the kids busy while waiting for the Santa to come. For preschoolers and toddlers, you can get simple puzzles that don’t require much assistance. For instance, put together alphabets to complete a Christmas picture.
4. Glittery play dough activity:
Toddlers and preschoolers are really fond of play dough. The Christmas glittery play dough is super easy to make. The children will get a festive feeling while playing. The kids can make multiple Christmas things from the glittery play dough like a Christmas tree, candy cane, etc.
5. Letter Block Christmas tree:
At the block center, the kids can make a Christmas tree using their letter blocks. Imagine how cute this Christmas tree would look like.
6. Christmas Frizzy experiment:
The best play school in Abu Dhabi encourages the kids to explore and experiment from really early age. We are all aware of super simple yet extremely exciting baking soda and vinegar experiment. Let’s give it a little Christmas twist by adding candy canes in it. The kids will love the magic.
7. Potato stamping craft:
For potato stamping craft, you need to draw your kid’s favorite design onto the vegetable. For instance, cut out a Christmas tree or a star on the potato. Ask the child to dip the potato in the paint color and let them be creative.
8. Meet the Santa Claus:
Christmas is incomplete without meeting the Santa as kids wait desperately for him to come and give presents. Children become so excited, they want to ask stories from him, ask lots of questions, they sing Christmas songs together. To make the occasion more memorable, we take lots of pictures.
9. Christmas Musical chair:
Simply play Christmas music and play musical chairs in the traditional way with one chair missing.
10. Santa says:
Just like kids favorite “Simon says” game, play the same game with a Christmas twist and call it, “Santa says”. Give commands like Santa says to eat the strawberry, or Santa says touch your nose with one hand and touch your ear with another.
Hope these Christmas activities will keep your little one busy and fully entertained throughout the day. If you are looking for a good Nursery school in Abu Dhabi, then visit Mosaic Nursery at Reem Island.
