Preschool Poetry - Recycled Christmas Collages

Pin It

Do you guys still have your Christmas decorations up? Ours came down the day after Boxing Day as our tree was dropping like crazy and everything had got a bit dusty and shabby looking by then. But of course, everything looks boring and normal afterwards - so we left the cards up an extra few days to keep some cheer. 

I always feel guilty throwing out cards - but you get so damn many, I don't wanna keep all that stuff in my house! So we took inspiration from a project we did a while back - Poetry Collages to have some festive literacy fun. 

Vin and I cut out all the cards with words, poems, jokes and messages on - then spent some time collaging them and making nonsense rhymes. 

This is a great pre-reading activity - recognising all the familiar words that have been around us lately 'meery', 'christmas', 'joy' and 'love' for example - plus beginning to build sentences and form meaning out of the words. 

You could also save some of your messages for next year's cards...
