Colored pasta activity with a Christmas twist

Age-appropriate: 3 – 4 years (BBK – Pre-school group)
Early Years Foundation Stage: Mathematics and communication
Skills trained: logical thinking, problem solving, cognitive development

In this special Holiday Season our BBK Pre-school group (3-4 years old) worked on their Mathematical and Logical Thinking development with a Christmas spirit twist.  Pre-schoolers used colored pasta to imitate Christmas lights. We used pasta not only for color sorting but also for counting and pattern making exercise. While working together at the tables children could talk to eachother, socialise and help eachother out with problem solving.

You can easily try to do this during the Chrismas Holidays! HoHoHo, happy counting.


This activity is put together by Justyna, our Pre-school teacher at Big Ben Kids Wassenaar
