Christmas Activity

Looking to keep your tot's hands busy as you frantically wrap pressies? Grab two sheets of paper, write 'Big' on one and 'Small' on the other, and give your child a stash of those ribbon gift-bow thingys in two sizes (big ones and small one, as you may have guessed). Easy-Peasy-Mac-and-Cheesy!

If you want to make it a bit easier for your child, have the big ones in one colour and the small ones in another. Or, conversely, make all the bows the same colour to make it a little bit trickier. I used two different colours for Eden, but only because they were the only ones I had on hand.
A little side note: when you write words on paper for your child, whether it's 'big' and 'small' like for this activity, or it's just their name on a painting, write on the top left corner. Doing so helps to prime them for future reading skills; in English, we read left to right and top to bottom.
