Today is the day for all things Christmas Tree!!!! If it involves a Christmas Tree, we will be doing it!!! We have a busy and fun day today (as always!!!)
Fruit Loop Trees: We will be starting out by making our Christmas Tree Towers out of Fruit Loops (actually Wegman's Frosted O's). The kiddos can sort out only Green colors for their tree (I have a hunch which kiddos will take this route) or make a pattern full of colors (also... have an idea who will get a little more abstract in their creation.... this includes me). Kiddie Choice!!! I love this activity and often have my nuggets do this at home when I need a few moment of quiet acitivty time in the kitchen. All you need are some circular cereal, playdough & a stick. This will keep them busy for awhile! It's a beautiful acitivty for Fine Motor Skill Development, working on the Pincher Grasp, Color Recognition, Counting, Patterns and more!!!
Pine Cone Christmas Tree Painting/Decorating: We will be painting and decorating our Pine Cone Christmast Trees. This will be messy and include lots of paint, glitter, tinsel, decorations and fun!!!!
Christmas Tree Cookie Decorating: So why not stay with the theme and decorate our own Christmas Tree Cookies for Snack? We will be decorating with all sorts of shapes and festive items from, round M&Ms, square crackers, circle cereal and more!!! We will be sure to discuss our shapes and colors during our bites of yummy goodness!!!
We also have Library, Show n' Tell and little Christmas Pageant Prep!
It's gonna be a great day in our room!!!!
As a mom, I love to know what my children are discovering during their days and I am sure you do too! Stop by here anytime to see what fun & learning we are up to!
