Christmas Cutouts **25 Days of Christmas Play**

Day 16 of 25 Days of Christmas Play

These Christmas Cardboard Cut-outs were perfect for Gross Motor skill play.

 I put these together for a playgroup Christmas party/Little Guy’s preschool Christmas party and my kids had to make sure they worked and were fun, of course!

I am always making cardboard stuff for parties, games, play…it has gotten to the point where people just drop off cardboard at my house, knowing it will be used…so funny! 🙂

The bean bag toss is an awesome Gross Motor activity…tossing the bean bags into the targets, crossing midline, eye-hand coordination, visual-perceptual-motor skills, developing body awareness,  language development, proprioceptive skills…  Bean bag toss games are used in rehab settings for people of all ages, and for good reason!  You could also use a variety of heavy or light balls/bean bags/anything to “wake up” the muscles.

This was just for fun at the parties.  Who doesn’t love to see themselves as a snowman???
