I want to do stations for my holiday party, pretty low key becuase time is seriously tight, but it has been a CRAZY few weeks.

One stations will be to make reidneer feed. Any ideas for any other stations?

Could your kids cut out and assemble a snowman?

I got dollar store bells, and mine will string bells onto pipecleaners. I have 2 colors, and they will do AB patterns, then do 2 red bells, then add 1 green bell and count the total. Maybe at the end they could shake the bells?

Sort and count red and green m&ms and then eat them?

Maybe look at www.this reading mama.com for her preschool Christmas ideas.

How about using rolled up white socks for snowballs and throwing them at or through a cardboard snowman. I decorated a blue tub with snowflakes and the children tossed the snowballs into the tub...the loved it!

Some low-key things my students enjoy:
I made stencils from margarine lids (hearts, stars, bells, trees). They love to trace the shapes onto colored paper or the fronts of recycled Christmas/winter themed cards. They cut out the shapes, punch a hole at the top, and tie a loop of yard to make an ornament. Or they create a picture with many shapes they've made.

I keep an assortment of die cut shapes in divided trays. The children can create pictures, cards, ornaments, etc. with them.

I put out an assortment of collage materials in divided trays.

I put out reproducible coloring pages (tree, gingerbread character, bell, wreath, star, snowman, penguin, polar bear). The children can use push pins and perforate the shapes. They can decorate as they like (crayons, markers, dot paints, collage). Most like to cut them out--good scissor practice.

Paper chains can be tricky, but some children really enjoy making them. They can count how many loops they put on. They can try to make a pattern. Or they can just learn how to make the tape work.

Thanks for the ideas

I ended up going with

#1 snack station - pattern banana and strawberry sliced to look like a candy cane
#2 Make Reindeer food
#3 Christmas puzzles and file folder games
#4 a movement game - either to ring the bell when you hear a rhyme or follow directions such as - reindeer reindeer nose so red - rub your belly pat your head! -
