Don’t Run Out of Activities During the Christmas Break

With our busy jar idea, you will find enough activities to engage with during the Christmas break. Each activity card will either encourage children to work independently or accomplish a task with your help. You will find that some cards will help spark their creativity, and some will require the child to solve an age-appropriate challenge.

The concept is straightforward. You will need a jar and colour coded paper. Each colour will have a theme so the child can enjoy a range of sensory play. You will need the following tools:

  • A jar
  • Scissors
  • Coloured paper
  • Pen

Use the scissors to cut small pieces of paper to fit in the jar. Use the pen to write down ideas and don’t forget to have fun!

We suggest the following:

Orange paper for energetic activities that will require physical movement. The tasks can be achieved alone or with the help of an adult.

Blue paper for food and kitchen-related activities. For instance, the child can help prepare a meal or have a picnic in the house.

Green paper for family activities. Together, you can make musical instruments from items you can find in the house and create your band.
