It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Christmas is always filled with lots of hustle and bustle and sometimes it's so busy, you have to just stop, slow down and remember what the season is about and all the blessing in your life.  We always are so busy at school trying to put so many activities into just a few weeks.  But......when all is said and done, you are thankful and happy you did, because for some children this is all the Christmas they may have.

Take a look at some of the activities, crafts and work that we completed over the last couple of weeks.

Paintbrush Santas made by cutting white and pink felt the size of the  silver part of the brush (white on the back and pink on the front.  Glue a white pom pom to the top, wiggle eyes and a red pom pom nose.  After all is dry go back with white and red puffy paint and paint on mustache and mouth.  

Loved making the puzzle piece tree this year.  I cut green triangles out of construction paper.  The kids glued small puzzle pieces all over.  We let them dry and then when back the next day and added more making sure all the paper is covered.  After they dried we spray painted them green and then the kids decorated them.  SO CUTE!!!!! 

Now....this is the best of them all this year.  I've made these in the past but this year they turned out wonderful.  Using brown acrylic paint make five or six thumb prints on the balls.  After drying use a red and black paint marker to make the nose, eyes and antlers.  The trick is to use a more of a fine point black so that the antlers will not be too fat.  Love, Love, Love.  The parents loved them.
