So to catch up...
I am not sure Jingles improved their behavior much but I had fun with him. :-)
|Jingles tried to pull Santa out of the chimney.|
|I was pleased when someone yelled out, "Look, he made a growing pattern!"|
|Riding the ladybug!|
|Picnic with Pete.|
We used tempera paint and q-tips for the face but I think Sharpies would have been just as good. I bought sparkly pom-poms and pipe cleaners and let the kids pick. Many liked to mix and match which drives me batty but I kept my mouth shut and hot-glued on whatever they told me!
I filled these cute containers with all different mints and added the tag for my parent volunteers.
We made nutcrackers and wrote about them. It always cracks me up why they say he doesn't eat nuts.
We read lots of gingerbread stories and wrote about how we ate a gingerbread cookie (yum) using Lori's packet. I pulled out various craft supplies and let the kids go to town decorating their own gingerbread person.
I also need to announce the 2 winners of the Me on the Map unit giveaway. SO sorry for the delay.
Congrats to Bren P. and Julie Marciniak I will email them right out to you! Click on the picture if you are interested in a map unit.
Alrighty friends, I am off to go try to catch up with some of your blogs! I hope everyone is having a safe, relaxing holiday and enjoying your family. Hugs and happy thoughts to all!!!!!
