I love Christmas crafts and card-making activities with young children. You can make most crafts and card-making activities into Montessori-inspired activities to maximize the learning benefits.
Here are some posts I’ve published with ideas that show how easy it is to create Montessori-inspired card-making and craft activities:
Montessori-Inspired Christmas Cards
These two Montessori-inspired card-making activities are from my “Christmas Around the World: Scotland” post. Since that isn’t an obvious place to look for card-making activities, I’m sharing them again here.
You’ll find information on creating both activities along with the link to a free printable for the metal inset tree in my “Montessori Around the World: Scotland” post.
Montessori-Inspired Christmas Crafts
“Turning Christmas Crafts into Montessori-Oriented Activities” (with simple Montessori techniques) also has links to some crafts that can easily be turned into Montessori-oriented activities.
“Montessori-Inspired Christmas Crafts” has links to beaded Christmas ornaments that could easily be converted to Montessori-oriented activities.
“Kid-Made Sparkly Craft-Stick Christmas Tree Ornament” includes a Montessori-inspired learning activity.
“DIY Christmas Dot Wrapping Paper” is simple enough for a toddler to make!
