Welcome to the 3rd edition of Teaching Together Blog Hop! I'm sure by now you can tell my blog has been taken over by the Christmas spirit and our schooling has been no different! Here are a few fun crafts we have been working on together.
I was feeling festive when I decided to create an DIY mitten matching game. I had Kinsey help me pick out decorations for each pair of mittens and then had her color them (this is completely optional. I just have an artsy girl.).
Afterwards, I glued the cards onto Christmas scrapbook paper, laminated them and then cut them out (I measured mine out 2 x 2.5 inches). And let the fun begin! Does it even need to be stated that she pretty much beats me every time?

To work on Kinsey's cutting skills I had her cut out strips of paper so we could recreate this cute Christmas tree paper chain (thanks to Nina for sharing this!) I stapled the strips, assembled and we are now down 3 chains.
And keeping with fine motor activities, we used pipe cleaners and jingle bells for some threading (eye- hand coordination) practice. And they make for some jangly bracelets too :)
