Christmas Preschool Centers

Christmas Preschool Centers I am pretty sure that I say this every year, but I LOVE Christmas. It is my most favorite time of the year. I love the pretty colors and decorations and, if I liked gingerbread cookies, I am SURE I would also love the smell of baked gingerbread cookies! There is something about ginger that just doesn’t sit well with my taste buds… Yesterday, I made a green juice and the recipe asked for ginger. So, I did what any person who doesn’t like a certain ingredient does – I halved the quantity. Well. Let me just say. I should have just left it out completely.

(Click the photo below to get colors red, orange, yellow.) I also added a Christmas ornament tracing activity for both upper and lower case letters. You could make a write and wipe tracing booklet with them by making a hole at the top of each ornament and securing them together with a key ring. It’s definitely a fun way to practice correct letter formation during the season! But, there are so many other uses for these alphabet ornaments! You could have children match upper and lower case letters, put them in alphabetical order, spell out sight words or children’s names and then display them around the room or on your Christmas tree.
