Green play dough

Pom Poms

Jingle bells


Foam Christmas stickers (leave the backing on)

Pipe cleaners – we like this tinsel kind


And anything else that you can think of to decorate the wreath

I found a Christmas craft pack at Michael’s that had pipe cleaners and pom poms combined

Activity Prep:

1. Lay all the supplies out on the table along with a picture or two of a wreath if you think your child needs to be reminded of what one looks like.

I helped Evan form the wreath because he is only 3.5 years old and that task was still too difficult for him. After that, he did the rest on his own. He picked the materials he wanted to use from the tray and put them wherever he wanted.  He would decorate the wreath and then take all the pieces off and start again. He spent a long time creating and making beautiful wreaths. I was truly impressed by his creativity!
