It’s the most wonderful time of the year! From singing Christmas carols to baking gingerbread men, Christmastime is full of magical experiences for children that only happen once a year. It’s also the perfect holiday to use to teach kids all about their five senses. What do they see, feel, smell, touch and taste during Christmas? Children can share their experiences in the My 5 Senses Christmas Book.
This free printable book is in the shape of a Christmas ornament. Each page has a writing prompt that begins “I see,” “I feel,” “I smell,” “I touch,” and “I taste” and writing lines for young children. There is also a space on each page for children to draw a picture of their Christmas experiences.
How To Use The My 5 Senses Christmas Book:
First, read books about Christmas. Then, talk about things relating to the season with your children or students.
Next, brainstorm a list of Christmas things and divide the list into categories for the five sense. Then, it’s time for your children or students to make their printable book.
