Christmas Planning

Last week, our kindergarten team sat down and tried to map out our next 2 1/2 weeks before Christmas break. This is always such a busy time for me at school as well as at home. It seems there is never enough time to get everything done. I wanted to share with you some of the ideas we are planning to do with our kinders.

This week we are planning to start by making a countdown to Christmas Santa with his beard being the countdown. This is an old pattern that a teacher had where you put a cotton ball on each day until Christmas eve. It is always fun for the kids to make and I make one to hang up on our calendar board.

We will start working on our Rudolph ornaments on Tuesday. These are the traditional ornaments made from the 3 popsicle sticks. They are always a favorite and they turn out so cute. Usually we start painting one day and then do the finishing touches the next day.

I have also had a request for the tags to go on the snowman handprint ornaments for this year. I updated it with the correct year. I hope you can all use it!

I am sorry I don't have more pictures to share with you right now but I promise to take some this week. Happy planning!

  3. Loving the snowman ornament. I've seen them on Pinterest but I think we all know that those great crafts don't always translate to the younger grades. I'm glad to see that it can work in the younger grades.

    You Might Be a First Grader...

  4. Thanks so much for updating the snowman tag, are they made or formatted to print out on business cards? If not - that is okay! I can just print and cut, thanks again for sharing your things.

  5. Pam - I didn't format these to print on business cards, just to be cut out. Thanks!


    1. Joni- that is no problem. I just thank you for updating and sharing :-)
