Christmas and winter activities to enjoy at home


Select a familiar object, such as one of your child’s toys and wrap it like a gift.

Ask your child to feel the outside of the “present” and try to guess what’s inside.

Then let her open the package to see if her guess was right.

Follow up by letting her wrap an object for you to guess.

As an alternative you could hide a toy inside a stocking (with eyes closed feel the toy and try to guess what it is.


Can you make a simple snowman using white circles – ask your child/ren to suggest what to add to the basic snowman (eyes, nose, mouth, arms, scarf, hat) Cut them from coloured paper and stick on,

Make snowflakes together – great to help your child/ren’s cutting skills – why not stick them onto dark paper afterwards.

Draw chalk snowflakes and a snowman on dark coloured paper.


Gingerbread is traditional in many countries around the world at this time of year.

Here’s   a simple recipe to make it......what shapes can you make and decorate.....cover in melted chocolate and add sprinkles and sweets...they could make a great gift for Grandparents or friends too.

This recipe uses a food processor.....but you can mix with your hands and a spoon just as’s more fun too!

If you don’t fancy cooking why not cut out gingerbread men shapes from brown paper and decorate.


Cut five candle shapes from any bright colour paper and five flame shapes from yellow or orange paper. Using a marker, number the flames from 1 to 5 and draw matching numbers of dots on the candles. Stick the candles onto a larger piece of paper or card. Then let your child/ren count the dots on the candles and place the matching numbered flame shapes above each one.


Here’s a great craft activity which will also help with remembering shapes
