CHRISTMAS

  • Decorate a Felt Wreath ... Cut a large wreath shape from a piece of green felt. Cut out a variety of shape "ornaments" from other felt colors. Let the kids choose different shapes to decorate their wreath. Take them all off and do it again.
  • Candy Cane Factory ... Draw three candy canes of different lengths on a sheet of poster board. Label them as long, longer, longest. Laminate & attach to a table. Add a small amount of peppermint oil to red & white playdough. Show the kids how to roll the dough & twist them together to make a candy cane. Tell them this factory makes three different sizes & let them use the candy cane guide on the table to make candy canes of different sizes.

snack idea: Make rice krispie treats in cone (xmas tree) shapes. Decorate with green frosting and sprinkles.
