Twinkl Christmas Resources

It can be difficult during the winter months to keep children entertained indoors when you’re done with all your puddle splashing outside. What’s even more difficult is coming up with genuinely worthwhile activities that you and the children can all enjoy! I’ve chosen a selection of resources from the twinkl resources website. twinkl produce beautiful hand drawn resources that look great stuck up on your walls, and best of all, kids love them too.

First off, I like this useful snowman sequencing activity, cut out the squares and treat it like a jigsaw, putting all the parts in the right places. Turn it into a speaking and listening activity using time connectives, “first of all, then we”, use logic and reason, “that must go first because”.

Christmas trees are always a winner and this Colouring Christmas Trees would be a lovely activity for children to take home to show their parents. Younger children can practice their fine motor skills and pencil control by colouring in the tree, whereas older children can design their own tree! Use this as an opportunity for talking about patterns and contrasting colours, what works well together and why.

No Christmassy type activity is complete without making your own advent calendar! This is one of our most popular resources and it’s easy to see why. We’ve a massive collection to choose from so the children in your care could all make different ones.  There are loads more Christmas related ideas over on twinkl, why not take a look!
