Shamelessly borrowing from Chasing Cheerios, I created this holiday felt board activity for M. last night. The idea is that he has to recreate a design from a photo on the gingerbread man. We haven't tried that yet; I gave him the cut-out and pieces to play with first thing this morning while I was getting organized and dressed (hence the messy bed!) and he's been enchanted with it all day! I made a similar activity at Thanksgiving with a turkey, but this one has already proven more popular. Every so often he runs up to his brother and says, "Look, Nay! Man!"
Here are a few of the designs I printed and laminated for him to copy:
I'm planning a similar idea with a snowman later in the winter.
