Our family drinks a lot of milk. For a while I have gotten into the habit of saving the little white caps on the top of our milk cartons. And today I’m sharing two simple Christmas learning activities you can do using milk caps.
Keep in mind, however, that these activities can easily be modified and adapted to help your children work on a variety of different skills. How will you adjust these activities to meet the needs of your children?
Note: For more Christmas activities your kids will love, see my Christmas Activities for Kids page.
For the first activity, I wrote lowercase letters on a Christmas tree (in another post I share free Christmas tree outlines you can use). I wrote matching uppercase letters on milk caps, and placed them on a tray next to the Christmas tree.
XGirl worked to match the uppercase letters on the milk caps with the lowercase letters on the tree.
When QBoy was working on numbers last year, I drew groups of dots on the Christmas tree and matching numbers on the milk caps.
He counted the dots in each group, and then covered the dots with the matching milk cap.
Simple Christmas learning fun!
