Friday Wrap-Up!

Small Group
(An activity that we all do at the table together lead by me)
Worked on some art work for our Parents Christmas presents. Shhhh

Jingle bell bracelets. Some of the kids were just working on their fine motor skills but other were making patterns. Caden did a different pattern on each side of his bell:)

We played roll a Christmas tree which I modified from Confessions of a Homeschooler:) They loved this one and it will be a shelf activity next week:)
White Board
Numbers 1-6 with circle magnets. Some stacked, some grouped and some kids put them in lines:)

Block/Floor Area
Color matching cars on the color wheel

Jack LOVES his Ikea abacus(and yes he stayed in his jammies for school :p)

On the Shelf
(activities that the children take out during work time and work on independently)

Melissa and Doug See and Spell puzzle. I'm just putting out on at a time and they are double sided

Christmas colored stones in the pattern tray

Dollar connect four game from Fry's

Tonging (great for strengthening hand muscles and improving hand eye coordination) Jingle bells in to a tall narrow cup

Jack really liked this one and got it out every day!

Party hoops

Dressing doll puzzle-Target

Christmas collage! HUGE hit! The kids LOVED this! There were 2 glue bottles in the center but they are both being used when I took the picture:)

New sand box! My dad and husband built this because our other one was too small(the size of the canopy is how big the old one was). It still needs more sand but the kiddos are loving it!

Painting at the easel with red paint and Christmas cookie cutters:)


  1. Oh wow - so many great things! First of all I think Matthew would LOVE stacking the circle magnets on the fridge - he would just think that is so cool. :) I love the new sand box too - what lucky kids! I also think the little party hoops would be a big hit here and a good help with aim (which we need!). Where did you find them? Thanks for hosting this link up, and the great, great week you've shared!

  2. Oops - not seeing the link up - have you decided not to do it? (Hope not!)

  3. It's easy to see that we worked at the same place at one time. I did so many of these identical activities this week. In fact, we did cookie cutter painting today.

  4. So many nice ideas!

    PS I can't see link up.

  5. Looks like a lot of fun! Thanks for sharing. I'm new to your blog and like all of your ideas.

  6. Lots of fun and just in time to get me ready to get ready (errr, yeah...) for the next few weeks ;)
    Will be linking up next Friday with what I've got out, and then hopefully not for ages until life with baby gets into some sort of routine!
