Toddler Playschool: Christmas Fun for Kids {free printable}

Pin It
We're taking a little break from exploring the alphabet in our Toddler Playschool. I thought I'd do a couple bonus lesson plans, first for toddler Christmas activities, then winter themed toddler activities. We'll pick back up with the letter P after the first of the year.  The Christmas activity calendar is a little different than ones in the past. The literacy category has been removed so that I could add two different types of books.  I know that all families are different and some classrooms have restrictions on religious based plans, so I tried to find resources that to focus on the Reason for the Season, as well as the more secular holiday traditions.
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

5 Little Snowmen
Five little snowmen standing in a line
One, Two, Three, Four, Five
So fine
Melt in the sunshine with a sigh
We'll see you next year
Bye Bye!
(repeat with one less snowman until they're all gone)

Away in a Manger
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my bedside 'til morning is night

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me for ever and love me, I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there
And fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there
