Welcome to our Makaton Advent Calendar!
Day 1 – Reindeer
Santa’s favourite form of transport, our first sign on the Makaton Advent Calendar is… Reindeer!
Day 3 – Snowman
Lots of you already know the sign for man, but did you know the sign for snow? Put them together to make a Snowman!
Day 4 – Sleigh
If you have presents for all of the children at PolkaDots, you’re going to need a big sleigh! To make the sign for sleigh, just pretend you’re holding the reigns and riding next to Santa!
Day 5 – Christmas
The most important sign, you can use this in all your Christmas songs!
Try singing and signing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”!
Day 6 – Christmas Tree
To make the sign, imagine you’re drawing the shape of your Christmas Tree at home with your hands!
Day 7 – Turkey
To make the sign for Turkey, hold two fingers beneath your chin and wobble them like a turkey!
Day 8 – Father Christmas
Did you write a letter to Father Christmas this year?
Make the sign for Father Christmas by pretending you’re carrying a big sackful of presents!
Day 9 – Christmas Cracker
Have fun with your Christmas dinner and pull a cracker!
Day 10 – Elf
The elves work all year round to help Santa make all his presents and Christmas is their favourite time of year!
