Snipping Santa’s Beard


Here’s a cute Christmas activity to work on fine motor skills from Hands On As We Grow. Have fun snipping Santa’s beard and get in a little bit of scissor cutting practice.

Montessori Inspired Geo Board

Toothpick Tree


A simple shoebox, some toothpicks, and pom poms are what you’ll need for this Christmas Tree activity from Stir the Wonder. It is a great activity to work on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills with your preschooler.

  1. First School says

    I use this with my 3 and 4 year old Special Education students. Find as many small/manipulative toys as their are the number of students in your class and the same number of hula hoops. I tell the students that Santa left me some toys to try out to see if children like them. I put one toy in each hula hoop and have a child go to a hula hoop and play with that particular toy. After 3-5 minutes they switch to another hoop, and so on, until the class is over. The kids really keep busy and seem to enjoy this activity.
