I think out of all the holidays that Christmas is my favorite. Christmas is the only holiday I decorate for and I love to create Christmas or Holiday themed games. I did a similar game for Halloween, that I made myself using construction paper, you can check it out here. This time around, I made several templates that you can print out and write a set of rhyming words on them. You can come up with your own words or you can use my list.
There are several pages of templates, you can print them all out or you can use the ones you like best. The way I do it is, I pick two word families, there are 4 words in each family, so I would have a total of 8 cards. I just lay them out in a board like pattern and play memory, when two words rhyme, you get to keep the card and the next person takes a turn.
My son is sort of a sore loser so I try to keep the games fun, so that means no one wins, but you can make your own rules for the game, it is all about your child's journey, my son gets mad and just shuts down and learning is done for the day, so I try to avoid that by making the games fun instead of competitive.
What is your favorite holiday template and what holiday themed educational games do you play in your classroom? Let me know in the comments!
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
