Proprioception Christmas Activity…with a hole punch!

This Christmas Tree activity is easy to put together. We used just a few items:

To make the Christmas tree counting busy bag:
Cut the Green Cardstock
into tree shapes. Add trunks with the Brown Cardstock
. Glue these in place. Use the black marker to write a number on each tree trunk.
That’s it! Next, show your child how to name the number on the Christmas tree and then to punch the corresponding number of holes into the branches of the tree.
This activity will help your child with:
Gross Hand Grasp
Bilateral Hand Coordination
Scissor Skills (See corresponding post, to be published, soon!)
