Holiday Patterned Bookmarks

You Will Need:

  • White card stock paper cut the page into 4 lengthwise
  • Foam stickers

The Activity:

Begin by creating a pattern by sticking foam shapes on paper and ask your child to continue the pattern. This is a great way to work on visual perceptual skills. Furthermore, peeling stickers is great way to work on finger skills. I like to have children create these and then use them as wonderful Holiday Bookmarks!

Holiday Tags

You Will Need:

  • White card stock paper
  • Holiday foam stickers
  • Hole puncher
  • Ribbon

The Activity:

This is a wonderful way to work on several fine motor and visual-perceptual skills all in one! The kids looooved this activity not only because it’s fun but they get to create tags they can use!

Start by creating postcard size cards and draw a line to divide the card in half. Then place stickers on one side of the card.

Place a card in front of your child along with extra foam stickers. Ask your child to reproduce the figure on the card by choosing matching stickers. (This works on important visual discrimination skills)

Ask your child to peel the stickers and copy what they see on one side of the card. (great for pincer strength and finger skills)

Once your child copies the figure as shown, ask him to cut along the line to create 2 tags and have him write “From: NAME” at the back of each tag.(This works on simple cutting skills and handwriting)

Have your child use the hole puncher to make a hole at the top of the card (strengthens little hands) and slip a piece of ribbon through it!

Tada! Adorable tags.
