?DIY Christmas Silhouette Matching?

By ChennaiMom

This is a simple activity or a fun game that can be made for the toddlers to play with during Christmas holidays, just by using some Christmas cookie cutters

It takes about 15-30mins to make them 

Supplies Needed:

  • Chart (color of your choice)
  • Christmas cookie cutters
  • Pencil
  • Black Sketch pen
  • Felt sheets
  • Scissor 

How To Make: 

  • Take the chart, fold it into half and cut it

[Crease the chart further so that after playing with it you can just fold it as it is and store it away]

  • Place the cookie cutters and draw the outline of all the shapes 

[If you don't have cookie cutters you can even do free hand drawing of all the shapes (of your choice)] 

  • Color the shape using black sketch pen to make it to look like a silhouette

[I tried to color using black color pencil but it wasn't as dark as I want it to be and hence the black sketch pen. You can see the difference between the snowman and to the rest of the shapes]

  • And also cut out the shapes of the cookie cutters from the felt sheets 

[You can even design the felt shapes (I dint)]

  • Place them down and encourage your toddler to match the felt shapes with the silhouette on the chart paper 

Baby moo loved matching them and it was so much fun snorting the Christmas themed shapes (We did this for our Christmas 2016)

This Activity helps in recognition of the shapes, in hand eye coordination, in getting the toddler into the holiday spirit of Christmas🎅🏻 and to the season of love💝

Stay tuned!!! For more activities from the ChennaiMom ❤️🙏🏻
