A couple of years ago we did a sticky wall Christmas tree activity, which was a big hit with my kids. (Looking back at those photos sure is bittersweet! My kids were so small, and XGirl’s hair was so short!)
Anyway, I like sticky wall activities for the open ended play and fine motor development opportunities they provide. So I decided to do another Christmas sticky wall activity to encourage my kids to “decorate” for the holidays.
Then I invited my kids to have fun!
XGirl dove right in. She put together a person that she explained to me was a “gingerbread man.”
Then she decided to build a Christmas tree instead. She found the parts she needed and got to work.
I loved watching her visual spatial and fine motor skills all get a workout.
And here was her end result!
