I am a HUGE fan of making fine motor tasks for my classroom and it can be so quick and easy to whip up a few Christmas task boxes for the holidays!
3 Errorless Task Boxes
I love making errorless Christmas task boxes for my TK-1st classroom! For me, these are the easiest to make and students benefit from fine motor practice.
1. Pom Pom Balls
This errorless Christmas task box is just an empty coffee creamer bottle and some red and green fuzzy pom pom balls. This is a put in task where students just put the pom poms into the bottle.
The students in my classroom love these tasks and they are so easy to make!
2. Jingle Bells
This errorless Christmas task box is another put-in task. For this one, I used an empty plastic chip container, some red duck tape for the lid, and I cut an X into the lid for the jingle bells to be pushed through.
I love this one because not only does it serve purpose for fine-motor practice, students love to jingle the can when they are done!
Here is another errorless put-in Christmas task box! I found these adorable mini presents and knew my students would love them!
For this box, I used another empty coffee creamer bottle – this one with a flip lid. I used velcro dots to secure the presents to the side of the bottle. This is great skill practice as students need to use both hands to pull off each present and push it inside for this one.
I love making task boxes that are visual as well – and this one students can see their hard work through the clear bottle when they are done!
Matching Christmas Lights
This Christmas task box is a more challenging one.
For task boxes that are not errorless, I always make sure to put some cardboard separators inside of the box. This helps me check to see if my students are doing the box correctly. I also cut a door in the side to get the pieces out when students finish.
Hanukkah Picture Sort
During the holidays, my classroom celebrates all holiday traditions, especially Hanukkah. This Hanukkah task box is a great way for students to work on their vocabulary knowledge.
I cut the holes in different directions as well as in different sizes on purpose. If your students need an easier box, consider using photos on the box instead of words. It is great practice for students to match non-identical photos. I printed these pictures myself!
