We were missing “J” today. It is getting harder to make Holiday crafts, but I saw one this morning and knew we had to do it. I painted one hand of each child white and had them place that hand on Green construction paper. Then we glued the green paper onto white Cardstock paper (Harder paper). Next we added a hat and face. Now each child has a homemade Christmas Card of their own hand, made into Santa. I hope you enjoy them. Then we moved onto games, playing and learning. I got a new Alphabet/Numbers mat for the Daycare playroom and the kids LOVE it. We made a game out of learning our ABC’s and numbers with it today. “E” did a great job with his alphabet and numbers, hopping to each square. “K” does a great job saying the alphabet out loud too. Then, I had gotten some additional play food, so we had a huge feast on the new mat as well. Lots of time cooking the new foods too. Then lunch , outside and rest. More playing after rest. Another great day!
