Plan a day themed around Stockings! We have a packet full of lots of fun stocking activities, including letters, numbers, counting, writing, and matching! We also have a free “Dear Santa” Stocking download for you!
My munchkins get so excited each time I print out a new product and get it cut, laminated and ready for them to play with! Here are a few pictures of the fun they have been having with this packet…
Counting Stockings – count out the right number of items to put on the stocking, you could use pompoms, any other manipulative or the pattern pieces from our Christmas Math Patterns download!
Even my 1 1/2 yr old enjoyed putting the pompoms onto the stockings!
Stocking Letter Find – find and circle the matching letters, or use manipulatives to put on each correct letter. (FYI – I printed these 2 to a sheet instead of the full size just to see how it would turn out… if I did it again I’d probably print the full size. So the ones in the pictures are about 1/2 the size of the ones in the download.)
I did not expect my 3 1/2 yr old to catch on to this one as quick as she did. She loved it, finished, erased it and did it over again a couple of times!
Here she is doing the Stocking Match Up game, another favorite that she did a few times over. You could just play a Matching game, or print 2 pages of them and play Go Fish (Stocking).
There is an interesting article over at the Smithsonian Magazine, that talks about the history of Christmas Stockings.
We also found a couple of neat resources for some Christmas Poems for children, some of course have stockings in them too! The first line up is at Homemade Gifts Made Easy, and the second is at primarysuccess.ca
