Christmas Tot Trays

Well, I guess I'm having a lot of trouble blogging consistently this month. lol I think that it will probably be like that until January. I may even take a little break until then....however, I do have several posts that I'd like to get done before then.

These are some of our Christmas trays for this year. If you want to see what we did last year go here...these posts will have some younger ideas too. We got our printouts from 2 Teaching Mommies, Musings of Me (I do not think these are available anymore, but she has other great printables to check out!), and 1+1+1=1.

Asa has been asking for a roll and graph tray for the last couple of weeks. This is from the 2 Teaching Mommies link.
Counting ornaments and finding the correct numbered star to go with it.
This was a favorite last year....I think that Asa will enjoy it too.
These are some file folder games I put together last year. You can find them at Christian Preschool Printables (a site you could get lost in forever... there are so many great things on it!).
Christmas tree matching from 1+1+1=1.
Stringing jingle bells.
Hammering golf tees. This is a favorite. I glued jewels onto the top of the golf tees to make them look more like ornaments. :)
These little sticker sheets are left over from our church's Sunday School curriculum. It is just sticker matching and could easily be done with any theme related sticker sheets.

Transferring. Silas has really enjoyed this one.
I found these little fabric lights at a garage sale I think. I used them last year with Asa. This year Silas will be using them.
Christmas card mailing station. The Christmas cards match the envelopes. They have to find the matching envelope, stuff them, and then mail them. This is a favorite! :)

We also have our play dough that we've been really enjoying. Happy blogging!


Linking up to 1+1+1=1 and Montessori Monday
Tot School


  1. Love the golf tee work and card matching! Lovely trays!

  2. I was going to glue some jewels onto golf tees for a similar activity but we don't have a toy hammer. I saw one in the Target dollar spot a couple months ago and for some dumb reason didn't get it! I pinned this activity in case I find a hammer :)

  3. fun- but i miss my pictures of the kids :(

  4. The golf tee activity is great. So creative!

  5. I love reading your blog! You always share so many cool activities.

    I love the hammering golf tees idea. My little boy would get such a kick out of that. Going to have to pin that for the future.

  6. Congrats on your pregnancy!

    I am starting a tray themed linky party and would love it if you would share your great ideas in this post or any future post :)
