Use the free agility cards in the freebie library or as a member get official reindeer agility cards from the members only product library.
Reindeer Cone Training
Work on your different gross motor skills with the Reindeer Run Cards that are available for free in the freebie library.
Fill Santa’s sleigh with Santa’s helpers (friends) or toys/books/presents and work on pushing and pulling the sleigh. Use a clothes basket, big box, wagon etc as Santa’s sleigh.
Reindeer Hoop Training
The reindeer need to be sure to help Santa get all the gifts in the right place. By working on their hoop training they will improve on this skill. A bean bag and hula hoop or tape circle are needed to perform this activity. It may be fun to use Christmas balls instead of bean bags for this activity.
