More jingle bells activities. We can’t get enough of all the fine motor activities we can do with these simple jingle bells. They were great  in a simple sound sensory activity. We paired with scented writing tray and now for some extra jingly math fun we are plaiting them with some up cycled paper rolls { More fine motor activities here}

I used the same silver tongs we used in the jingle bells fine motor tray activity.

They are just as fun as without the tongs

You can get in some sorting exercises by encouraging your child to separating the bells into different colors. After separating the bells into 3 different clear cups { I like to use clear cups to make the colors stand out } Then we used foam number stickers and stuck on the paper rolls.

Surprisingly my 6 year old was just as interested in this fine motor activity as my 4 year old. The kids picked up the corresponding number of jingle bells and dropped into the paper rolls. The sound of the bells on the metal cookie sheet was the highlight!

Then the kids were unto themselves playing with the jingle bells on the cookie sheets making lots of sound.

I think the best part is the cookie sheet. The sound the dropping jingle bells make adds to the excitement which makes this a more engaging fine motor activity.
