What is Flexiboard?
Flexiboard is our new lightweight, thin plastic product, perfect for easy storage. It's water-proof and scratch-resistant, however it's not strong enough to hold its shape on its own and we recommend pairing it with either a wood or acrylic insert to act as a base. It is also flexible but care should be taken not to bend it more than 90 degrees as this may cause it to break.

Christmas small hole large flexiboard insert is double sided with a tree on one side and a gingerbread house on the other side is a versatile and engaging Christmas-themed educational tool. When paired with a small hole large base insert and used with lights, it can provide a fun and educational experience for children. Here's how it can be effectively utilized:
Light Bright Effect: Using lights underneath the insert, such as light bright bulbs, creates a visually appealing "light bright" effect. This adds an element of excitement and sensory stimulation to the activity.
Fine Motor Skills: Placing small Christmas picks or decorations on the tree or gingerbread house helps children develop fine motor skills as they manipulate and arrange the pieces.
Creativity: Children can use the Christmas-themed insert to create their own holiday designs, decorating the tree with ornaments or the gingerbread house with candies and other decorations. This fosters creativity and imagination.
Seasonal Learning: The Christmas theme provides a seasonal context for learning about holiday traditions, decorations, and the significance of Christmas trees and gingerbread houses.
Storytelling: The themed insert can be used as a storytelling aid. Children can create holiday stories, imagining characters and events related to the tree and gingerbread house.
Math and Counting: Use the Christmas-themed insert for math activities. Children can count the number of decorations, sort them by color or shape, or create math problems related to the holiday theme.
Language Development: Encourage children to describe their holiday designs, explain their choices of decorations, and engage in conversations about Christmas traditions, building their vocabulary and language skills.
Collaborative Play: The activity can be done individually or in groups, promoting collaboration, sharing ideas, and working together to create holiday scenes.
Sensory Exploration: Manipulating small decorations, such as Christmas picks or ornaments, provides a tactile and sensory experience, allowing children to explore textures and shapes.
Educational Themes: Use the Christmas-themed insert as a springboard for discussions about holiday customs, the history of Christmas trees, gingerbread houses, and other festive topics.
Reusability: The insert and decorations can be used repeatedly, offering the opportunity for children to create new holiday scenes each time.
Hands-On Learning: This activity provides a hands-on, interactive approach to holiday learning, making it enjoyable and memorable.
Overall, the Christmas small hole large insert with a tree and gingerbread house design, when used with lights and decorations, offers a multi-sensory and creative way for children to learn about and celebrate the holiday season.
