Do you want to know what’s been keeping little hands busy in my house this December?
It all started with a not-so-little visit to Pinterest:
My daughter likes window shopping from the comfort of home just as much as I do. I love crafting with her, so I didn’t mind that her wishlist was a mile long! Over the course of about 10 days, here are the projects my daughter accomplished:
Materials used: white paper, pencil, a black sharpie (Mom), and watercolor paints.
Materials used: paper, paint, cotton balls, red poms, scissors, glue, and photographs printed in black & white. My daughter decided she wanted to paint a “patter-en” (as she calls it) for the arms and legs rather than try the accordion fold. I helped with the antlers, elf hat, and elf shoes. We decided to make Little Mister a reindeer, too!
Both of these pins were dead ends. If you know the original sources, please share!
Ribbon Wreath Plate
Materials used: paper plate, hole punch, and ribbon. This was a great lesson in patience and weaving for her. The plate was done just in time to hold the cookies we brought to share for her preschool Christmas program!
Look at this great book sharing idea for Valentine's Day! It's called Blind Date with a Book. Students can wrap up a good book and write a description on the outside. Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date! How memorable! What an amazing idea for #valentinesday! Thank you for sharing Jessica! I see so many teachers trying this out! @thegreenelementaryteacher LOVE! #books #reading #library #blinddate ...
