This holiday fun pack will bring delight to the holiday season for an entire week with these exciting holiday themed activities. They incorporate a bit of Math, Language, Science, and a whole lot of Art.
Activity 1: LET’S BUILD A SNOWMAN!
This is a fun activity where students colour the pieces of a snowman, cut them out, and paste them together in a layering fashion to create a cute snowman that they can bring home and decorate their houses with.
Differentiate this activity by supplying your students with fabric, pompoms, birch bark, sequins, ribbon, yarn, glitter glue, and more.
This activity is great for fine motor skills, patterning, and creativity. Talk to your students about patterns they can create in the different sections of the scarf.
You could display the snowmen as they are on a bulletin board or adhere them to some construction paper. Along with the decorated trees and snowflakes, this would make a really cute display for parents to see when attending your school’s Christmas / Holiday concert.
Activity 2: LET’S DECORATE A TREE!
-Math and art activity
Students have the task of colouring the shapes for their tree (1 triangle and 3 polygons). There are also circles, stars, and stripes that they can colour, cut out, and paste onto their trees. This is a fun art activity to combine with a Math lesson. You could ask students to follow instructions and put for instance, 5 small stars on the tree, 2 big stars, 3 circles, etc. You can ask them to colour the triangle green, colour the smallest polygon brown, etc.)
You can enhance this activity by providing your students with fabric, pompoms, birch bark, sequins, ribbon, yarn, glitter glue, and more.
Activity 3: MY HOLIDAY WISH
-Language and art activity
In this activity, students are presented with an empty snow globe. Spend time brainstorming different wishes that they have for the holiday season. This would be a good activity to incorporate some social studies, as you can talk about how some people can’t afford toys, clothes, and food. You can talk about services that we have in our communities to help people who are less fortunate (eg. The Food Bank, Santa Fund, drives to collect toys and winter coats for people who need them, The Salvation Army, etc.).
After you brainstorm ideas for holiday wishes, they can draw their wish inside the snow globe and write a message below telling about their wish.
Activity 4: MY GIFT TAGS
Students have 4 blank gift tags to design (a heart, rectangle, square, and present with a circle in the middle). They are provided with pictures that they can colour (gift, holly, snowman, reindeer, candy cane, tree, sleigh, stars, heart, and bulbs), cut out, and paste onto their gift tags.
Activity 5: Let’s Make a Snowflake
-Math, science, and art activity
These are not your usual snowflakes. They come in different shapes (square, circle, and hexagon) with fun designs inside (polka dots, stripes, and a pretty swirl design with dots). Students can colour the designs on their shape, cut it out, fold it 2 or 4 times, then cut little shapes, such as squares, half circles, and triangles into the sides and corners of the folded paper.
Talk about how every snowflake is different. You could have a discussion about how water turns into snow (here’s an explanation of how water turns into snow with a fun video showing a lady throwing boiling water into the cold air and it instantly turns into snow - http://www.livescience.com/32951-how-can-boiling-water-turn-snow.html)
Have fun and enjoy!
