hot cocoa number match
The free membership printable this week is Hot Cocoa Number Match for number recognition and review. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
I set the hot cocoa cups and number circles out on the table in to separate piles. I made sure the numbers were all mixed up in each pile. Children put the cups in numerical order and then put the matching number circle on top of each cup.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday January 28th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added Hot Cocoa Alphabet Match.

We made puffy paint penguins after circle time today. It was a great project for scissor skills ... sensory and fine motor development. We used black and orange cardstock paper to make the the penguins. We free cut the penguin shapes but I have included patterns that you can trace around on the cardstock paper.
The next step was to make the puffy paint which was really easy. The children mixed 1 cup of shaving cream and 1/2 cup of white glue together with a craft stick. The puffy paint should be like a thick marshmallow topping ... if it is not you can add more glue.
The children applied the puffy paint to the penguins using either their fingers or craft sticks. The penguins took a while to dry because of the thickness of the paint.

The free membership printable this week is Snowman Color Match for color recognition. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and and cut them out.

I made a snowman roll and cover mat to work on math and fine motor skills. I printed the mat on cardstock paper and laminated it. I then set it out with dice and glass cover-ups.
In this activity children roll the dice and cover up the same number on the snowman mat. Play continues until all numbers have been covered. I made both numbers 1-6 and 2-12 (roll two dice and add) mats. Click the link below to download.

The free membership printable this week is mitten match and clip which is great for color recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I cut white yarn into six inch pieces and tied the ends to large white plastic coated paper clips. I set them out along with the mittens that I had mixed up. You can also just use paper clips without the yarn and even clothespins.
In this activity children find the two mittens that match and clip them together. I have included four different sets of color mittens so you have a variety to choose from.
You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday January 15th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added winter learning friends matching mats.
