Need an easy holiday activity? Try this Christmas Post-It Match.
I love Christmas activities. I love Post-it note activities. Put it together: this Christmas Post-it Match is THE BEST.
It’s so easy to make a Christmas Post-it Match!
I’m all about the post-it matching activities – we’ve done them with letters, numbers, shapes, and names.
This was our first time doing one Holiday-themed and it was EVERYTHING. I can’t recommend this enough.
Post-it Match activities are so easy to personalize for kids or set up at exactly their level – from young toddlers to elementary age students. This activity just works.

- Post-it notes
- Black marker
- White butcher paper
- Painter’s tape (wall safe tape)
On the white butcher paper, draw 8 Christmas, Holiday, or Winter-themed symbols.
Grab your sticky notes and draw the same symbols there. I use two-different colors (because I was running out) and repeated the symbols four times each for a total of 32 sticky notes to hide and find.

It’s a hide-n-seek Christmas activity!
Take the sticky notes and hide them around the house.
I started this activity by having my 4-year-old hide them for my 3-year-old. Over the next few days, all my kids (including my kindergartener) hid these post-it notes, looked for them, and had a ball playing this.
My 11-year-old neighbor got involved too and announced it was one of the most fun activities we’d ever done.
I’ll take that review!

Christmas Post-It Match is KID-sufficient
…meaning kids can set this up for each other and play without an adult being involved.
My kids kept setting this up for EACH OTHER and I was left to drink all the hot coffee and unload all the dishwashers I needed to. This was one Christmas activity worth its weight in gold.
What an easy activity to set up!
And one that packs a serious learning punch.
When a child is doing matching activity like this, they’re working on their visual discrimination skills to be able to tell the difference between two symbols. While that seems simple, that’s exactly what’s happening when a child is reading (they’re looking for differences in symbols) so you can consider this a pre-reading activity too.
It’s also full of gross motor skills as we get those kids up, active, and moving.

It’s an easy Christmas activity for kids to play – kids of all ages. From age 3-11, this worked fantastically at my house.
What a great way to get kids moving, busy, and interacting with the holidays – thanks for this magical idea, Toddler Approved!
