Toddler Holiday Game

Here's a really easy game that you can make and switch out different skills.  Find a christmas tree pattern, such as this one.  Cut the trees in half.  Tape or laminate lower half to file folder.  Laminate top half -- I used scrapbook paper on the back, just to give it a little distinction between front and back. You can use velcro or magnetic tape on the back of the tops of the trees.  Then, create a matching skill, such as number recognition, upper to lower case letter, letters, adding or subtracting solutions, shapes -- the list is endless.

Here's a tip:  Write on top of the lamination with a permanent marker (yes, I said permanent).  To erase the permanent maker use hairspray and wipe with a paper towel.  You can use the pieces over and over again.  I plan to give my daughter a different challenge each week.
