Of course it is warm and we are making snowflakes !
Our advent calendar bag had ” Bake a birthday cake for Jesus ” on it today. So we did !
We also made snowflake ornament for your tree.
Do you see that pincher grip the child is using to pick up the glitter ? That is the same grip we use when holding our pencils. Though it seems we are mindlessly making ornaments. We are using a lot of pre- kindergarten skills too !
During circle time we played a guessing game. I had a stocking and items off my tree in it and we guessed what the object might be given clues. Ex :
This was a guy that was in the parade last night.
He has red hair.
He has a big red mouth.
He wears a striped shirt.
His name starts with an R.
He lives at a place we go to eat .
Yowzers… I guess Ronald McDonald isnt as popular as he was when I was a kid. The ornament was a Ronald McDonald and I was able to share with the kids why it was on my tree. I used to work at McDonalds when I was 16 years old and I did the birthday parties there. I love sharing my ornaments and why they mean so much to me with other people. I had a captivated audience of 16 today. Maybe we will do it again every day until school is out. ( Todays ornaments were a sequin truck that my mom made. The Ronald McDonald ornament and the wedding ornament that Randy and I got the year we were married. Ask the kids what they look like . Encourage descriptive words like shiny, small, or wooden. )
( I made the stocking a few years ago to at a womens retreat. Just call me Suzy Home-maker. )
