Santa “Hands” and New Alphabet/Number Mat

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!

Ho Ho Santa’s

 Today we used construction paper, Cotton balls, glue and a black marker and made Santa Clause faces. The kids loved this craft.   I cut the pink construction paper into circles for the head, and the red paper into hat shapes and also a red nose.  The kids glued the pieces together and glued the nose on. Then the fun really began.  The children loved playing and feeling the cotton balls.  Then we spread glue over the bottom of the hat and the lower face.  The kids then placed cotton balls on the face and hat.  I then just took a black marker and made the eyes.  They really had a fun time making their Santa faces. 

I would value any feedback you may have on this entire BLOG site.  I haven’t heard a lot since I began it.   Thank you..
