What You’ll Need
- Christmas stockings color sorting activity sheet
- Laminating sheets
- Pom poms, buttons, counters
What to Do
Begin by downloading and printing the Christmas stockings color sorting activity sheets. We recently signed up for the HP Instant Ink program and are loving it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them. We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty printing out new printables and playdough mats each day. If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you one free month of service. You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices). Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.
Once you’ve printed and laminated your Christmas stockings color sorting activity sheet, it’s time to have some fun!
Christmas Stockings Color Sorting Activity Sheet Playtime
To play, place the activity sheet and a small bowl of colorful objects (pom poms, buttons, gems, or these) beside the sheet and invite your child to sort the objects by color, placing them on the appropriate stocking.
Miss 4 helped me sort and even had fun making happy faces on the stockings as she went. 🙂
You could also cut out the Christmas stockings and attach them to different containers and invite your child to drop the different colored objects into their appropriate stocking.
