Beaded candy canes for the tree. You just take a pipe cleaner and have them make patterns with pony beads on it and curve it into a candy cane shape. It's a great way to teach patterns and have them work on fine motor
Skills. Also u can make Christmas play dough. We make playdough in my prek class all the time. I buy mint extract and cinnimelt extract and we put
Glitter and fun stuff in it. Good cooking experince as well as builds fine motor
A mama posted a picture of this the other day and I copied it.
Mix 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup water, 1 cup flour. Roll out flat. My son pushed his handprint into it, cut around his handprint.. Bake at 250 for 2 hours and then we painted it to look like Santa. I put a little home on the top so they are hung like ornaments. I can't post a pic because I'm on my phone but if you google handprint Santa ornaments I'm sure some would pop up.

Hot dog that reminded me of air fresheners ornaments. How could I forget?!?! Haha
Equal parts applesauce and ground cinnamon. A little
Glue is optional unless there risk of them eating it. Stir
Into a wet playdough consistency. Shape your own shapes or use cookie cutters. Thicker ones last better but thinner ones dry faster. We always use a coffe straw and poke a hole in the top so we can string a ribbon through after it's dry. Let dry flipping after one side looks dry (you have to rotate them a lot. The moisture from
Te applesauce settles. So it keeps requesting the other side until it dries
Out). Voila, apple-cinnamon ornaments. We use them in the car for air fresheners as well they also make cute gifts
