Adding Christmas colors of pom poms and jingle bells to little round bottles, made for some great shakers. It was a great activity for fine motor control as we had to push the pom poms and bells through the hole in the bottle.
We used them to "jingle" along with today's book, Jingle Bells.
We sang the song and shook our bells as we read.
After lots of shaking and jingling, we had to move through a "Jingle Bell" obstacle course without jingling the bells! It was an awesome large motor workout with lots of motor planning.
