The Beard of Santa
You can offer this material as an independent activity to promote fine motor skills and writing skills. Practice your writing moves with these fun writing patterns in Santa's beard. Use a writing tray with sand, salt, flour or other material, a stick and place the head of Santa Claus in it. Oh dear Santa has lost his beard, can you draw him back? Draw a card with a pattern and let the beard hair wave. There are left-to-right or top-to-bottom patterns. From angular to wavy, from teeth to arches.
You can also attach the Santa Claus heads to the table and let the toddlers experiment with shaving cream. Give Santa put back his beard and trace the patterns in the foam with your fingers. You will also receive the vertical patterns on cutouts. Here you can practice the cutting skill. Cut the beard in nice patterns from bottom to top.
