On Monday the kids assembled special gifts and made cards to go with them.
Wednesday they decorated bags using lots of different holiday stamps, markers and dot paints.
Other things we worked on this week included jingle bell bracelets for our program.
We also started making candle holders. Our first step was covering a jar with glue and adding sparkles and glitter. Next week we will make beaded wire handles.
The candy builders were so much fun to stack, connect and create with!
The kinetic sand was in the tub, along with a gingerbread man mold, cookie cutters and holiday gems. Our little bakers made all kinds of sweet treats!
Our carpet/dramatic play area is ALWAYS busy. Whether children are building or acting something out, there is lots of practice sharing, communicating, problem solving and collaborating. It's so great to see!
During our story time this week, we learned a new yoga series, played our jingle bells, and read lots of fun holiday books.
We've also been reading books about being unique and embracing the things that make us each special. For our friendship circle on Friday we passed Clifford around and took turns sharing about things we are good at.
We are excited about our last few days together before the winter break and look forward to our program on Friday!
