Fun filled activities for your classroom that promote learning through play!

I think I have said this before but it is worth repeating, Christmas bows are awesome! They come in bright colors, they are shiny, and they can be used in all kinds of ways in the classroom…

Mrs. Courtney recently shared a terrific collection of ideas we have done in the past with gift bows which you can see by clicking here. After sharing her post, Margaret from Your Therapy Source left a comment with additional suggestions for getting kids moving with simple games with bows and so these ideas are compliments to you Margaret!

Color Hunt

For our first game, we tossed a bag full of Christmas bows in the middle of the floor then went on a color hunt! I called out a color and the children had to run, grab that color of bow, then go back to their spot in the circle…

A fun way to work on color recognition and get some exercise in the process!

Parachute Play

For our second game, the children gathered up all the bows and tossed them into the center of our “parachute.” We used a round tablecloth for our parachute because it was smaller and we don’t have a very large amount of space in the classroom for a big parachute…

Once all the bows were on our parachute, we worked together as a class to shake the bows off the parachute then put them all back on again…

Having fun and Working Together

Keeping everyone doing their part of the parachute game is a good lesson in cooperation and collaboration so we stopped every once in awhile to regroup and then off we went to shake those bows again…

Super simple fun! Thank you Margaret for adding fun ideas for play to our fun pajama party day!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'

Spin-around game

Your children will love to play invented games together in the preschool classroom! My students love, and I mean love, playing all kinds of large
