How do I use these Reindeer Games activities?
As you work toward the December holiday break, these activities make excellent time-fillers to keep students focused and engaged. The mazes, dot-to-dots, directed drawing page, word searches, and coloring pages are great for students to use as early finishers. They are also so helpful to have on hand for indoor recess days. If you have write-and-wipe sleeves and dry-erase markers, the mazes, dot-to-dots, and word searches make a very quick and waste-free activity for students to complete as a center.
The Roll-a-Reindeer game is a fun turn-taking activity for a small group. Students practice social skills as well as subitizing as they build a reindeer on their game mat. This is a fun station game and can be a rotation at your holiday party.
To play Reindeer BINGO with your students, print and prep as many cards as you need out of the 30 provided, and find manipulatives you can use as markers. The downloadable PDF file includes a link to a Google Slides file that you can project to model how to play BINGO. This file also makes it easy to keep track of which numbers you’ve already called.
The Pin the Nose on the Reindeer game includes four printable pages to assemble into a big poster. If you’d like to reuse this, make sure to laminate it! This is a fun twist on a traditional party game that your students will enjoy playing at your holiday party. If you have a parent volunteer, this would be a perfect station for them to supervise.
