Christmas in our classroom….

We were busy little elves the last few weeks and our class had so much fun making crafts for the holiday season!  We even had Santa himself visit our school!  We all gathered together and sang Christmas songs and got a picture with Santa too!

A Cookie for Santa

We made a special cookie that we painted and cut a bite out of, then glued it to a holiday plate and added a cute poem to go with it.

Reindeer Food

We can’t forget Santa’s reindeer, they work hard too.  To make this special treat just mix oats and glitter.  The magic glitter will sparkle in the moonlight and attract the reindeer to your yard.

Hand Print Santa’s

For the parent’s gifts, we made hand print Santa’s on a pot holder.  I painted each section of the child’s hand a different color.  The thumb and bottom of the hand I painted red, the palm I painted a skin tone and the fingers white.  After it was dry, I added fur around the hat, a pom pom, mustache and eyes.  A keepsake that parents will treasure for years to come!

Gift Bags

We made cute foot print reindeer gift bags to put the Santa pot holders in to give to the parents.  They children wiggled and giggled as I painted their feet and toes for this craft.

The week ended with a visit from Santa!

Merry Christmas to all!
