Winter & Christmas Activities for Pre-K and Kindergarteners

I used to work at a private school. While we weren't a religious school, we still celebrated Christmas. I was working in the Pre-K room, so that meant we got to do a lot of fun Christmas crafts. I love this time of year, and it is especially fun to spend it with kids at this age. Here are a few activities inspired by Christmas and Winter that I'd like to do in the future.
1. Shape Matching Christmas Tree (fine motor, shape recognition, matching)
2. Numeral Matching Gingerbread Man (math, numeral recognition, one-to-one correspondence)
3. Santa Face Craft (fine motor)
4. Fruit Loop Candy Canes (fine motor, patterns)
5. Paper Wreath Craft (fine motor)
6. Snow play dough (science exploration, fine motor)
7. Giant Christmas Tree Coloring (fine motor, peer collaboration)
