Christmas Themed Pete the Cat Activities for Preschoolers
There are so many fun Pete the Cat activities for preschoolers you can add to your Christmas lesson plans this year! One of my favorites involves recycling some of those Amazon boxes you’ve got stashed in the garage (just me?)
Here’s how to do it: gather 12 boxes, recycled shoe boxes, or old Amazon boxes are great for this part. Wrap or decorate the boxes to make them look like holiday gifts.
Then, practice sorting, sequencing, and counting skills by having your preschoolers find Pete the cat’s 12 holiday items from around the room.
You can get creative with some of the items for your boxes. For example, consider using paper onion rings for day 5 or a postcard from the sea for your “road trip to the sea.”
Preschoolers will have fun moving around the room and getting all those holiday wiggles out as they search for the items. Plus, it’s a great way to encourage your preschoolers to develop problem-solving skills this Christmas!
