Wow! Can you believe we have less than three weeks till Christmas? December is flying by too fast!
Christmas is a great time to give and show love by doing kind things for others. Today I’m going to share our Kids Corner Booth during the VCF – Sharjah Family Day.
The event was held in CUCA also known as Preston University in Ajman.
In partnership with CFC department we were in charged to take care of the kids activities.
Our booth opens at 9am and kids had a great time cheering their parents.
Right after cheering competition we set the invitation. We prepared Create your own accessories using Dye Pasta Beads.
This is such an instant hit. They all went ga-ga creating their own necklaces and bracelets. They were too focused and excited.
Our next activity was classic! I must say that never estimate how kids works. Their imagination is superb! And their creativity are extra ordinary. God really makes them champion! A future leaders!
Kids were asked to create an animal using clay. They giggle when they heard CLAY!
Ahh.. you can never be wrong with clay! Kids love it so much they all worked together to come up with their own masterpiece!
CLAY + CREATIVITY = FUN
Before we end our morning session and while waiting for lunch break we let the kids rest by reading books. I brought lots of christmas books and they all enjoyed reading.
We can’t get enough of clay so we went back playing clay but this time we used the playdough mats.
Creativity flourishes when things are done for enjoyment. What matters is the pleasure, not the perfection. Let’s forget about the “getting it right” and let’s give our kids the opportunity to explore, to make mistakes and take risks and to feel the freedom to express all their wonderful ideas.
Coming up part two of our Fun with Kids Corner..
Today’s activity is super-cute
and easy Christmas craft for kids to make.
For Day 11 we made Frosty the Snowmantissue roll craft!
Actually the materials are things that you likely have around the house:
paper (orange and white)
How to make a toilet roll snowman:
We started by wrapping a strip of paper around the tube.Then taped it, to make sure it stayed in place.
Next we used the elastic part of the sock as bottom of the hat buy instead of gluing the hat I prefer to used the washi tape para cute.
You may use markers to draw eyes or use googly eyes
Lastly we glue the buttons on his belly..
There you have it! From recycle material turned into a cutie christmas craft..
Tweezers and Paint Tray.
Now here’s a fun activity that uses materials readily available in our house.
Take a clean paint tray or ice cube tray, a pair of tweezers, buttons, pompoms colored cotton balls or macaroni pasta.
Since we only have uncooked and uncolored pasta. I just ask Angelo to try to transfer the small pasta using tweezers.
However, for more challenging task, you can ask your toddler to sort items into the tray slots by color, size, or quantity.
The goal of this activity is to teach the toddler to hold the tweezers using the proper pincer grip (thumb on one side, and the pointer and middle fingers on the other).
There are lots of activities that we can introduce to help and encourage physical development of our kids.
Toddlers often do not have precise fine motor control, but we can always help them to learn to use their small muscles during play.
One activity that kids may like is shoe lacing.
After noticing that Angelo was enjoyed and interested in making pasta necklaces we move on to our next activity.
I bought the shoe cardboard in Toys R Us for aed 5.
Lacing is an excellent activity for developing fine motor skills, improving hand-eye coordination and concentration.
Make sure that shoe will fit to your toddler’s foot! Hehe
Happy Saturday Lacing!
