The following ideas are based on games in the weekly PreschoolRock.com newsletter. I’ve described them the way I intend to do them but I’ve linked to the Preschool Rock version also.
- Where Did Those Bows Go?: Gather your gift-wrapping materials and gifts to be wrapped, including some pre-made bows (like these). Hide one bow for each gift you’ll be wrapping in the same room. As you wrap each gift, ask your child to find a bow, and allow him to attach the bow when you’re done wrapping that gift.
- Little Drummer Boy Game: Put on some holiday music and tap the beat on a drum or the bottom of a bowl. Help your child do the same. (Knowing a few people who can’t find the beat of a song, I think it’s important to help my kids learn to do it.)
