4 Tuesdays till Christmas

There were squeals of delight as the children walked through the door and saw the first display of Christmas lights in the classroom. I know it is early but as we break up in only a few weeks we needed to start out Christmas activities.

The scent of the cinnamon playdough filled the classroom with a delicious fragrance. The children used the cinnamon playdough to create gingerbread men and decorated them with an assortment of buttons and eyes. These were displayed proudly on beautiful doilies and plates.

On the light table this week the children made antlers for Rudolph and the other eight reindeer and counted out peg legs to go on every one. This was a lot of counting!

I love Comet's antlers

We made some Christmas wrapping paper by printing lovely yellow stars on large sheets of paper.

I hope you visit next Tuesday to see loads more Christmas activities...

Happy Tuesday
