Christmas in the Toy Store….

We have had an amazing time getting ready for the Christmas holiday!  We learned so many fun songs for the Christmas program….we are so proud of the kids they all did a wonderful job!  We also had a lot of fun making our holiday crafts as well.  Every child took home a bag filled with lots of goodies and crafts that we made in class.  Our class party was a great success as well.  The kids had lots of fun decorating their cookies and drinking hot chocolate and  had a great time exchanging books.  We wish you all a blessed and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  We are looking forward to 2012 and all the creativity and fun it has in store for us!

The Christmas program: "The True Meaning of Christmas" was a huge success! We all worked so hard learning the songs and everything turned out beautifully! Fun was had by all!

hand print christmas angels preschool craft

Our hand print Christmas angels! This is one of my absolute favorite Christmas crafts!! The boy angels wore blue robes and the girl angels had red robes. I also tried to match the hair color of the angel to the child too.

preschool snowman hand print ornament craft

Hand print snowmen ornaments. These took a few tries to get right, but I found out that you need to use acrylic paint, then after that they turned out perfectly.

magical reindeer food recipe and poem

The magical reindeer food we made! Made of oats and magic glitter to attract Santa's reindeer to your house. This is such a great tradition that we do in my family every year!

Magical Reindeer Food

Inside this special package is a treat, but not for you!

It contains magical reindeer food and here is what you do.

Sprinkle this magical reindeer food carefully on the ground.

And tonight if you are lucky Santa’s reindeer will come around.

But here’s a secret I have to tell, one you must try to keep.

That Santa’s reindeer only come when you are fast asleep.

So quickly put your jammies on and get a story read,

Then sprinkle this magic treat outside

and hurry off to bed!

silly reindeer craft for preschoolers

All of the kids turned into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! This was such a fun and silly craft!

I thought these songs were perfect for us to learn, since we do not have the typical Christmas weather here in Florida!

 

            A Sunny Christmas       

(to the tune of Jack and Jill)

There is no snow.

There is no ice.

At Christmas time in Florida.

But I can play

In the sun all day.

On Christmas Day in Florida!

Christmas Sun

(to the tune of Jingle Bells)

We may not play in snow

Or wear big heavy clothes,

But everybody knows

What time of year is near.

We decorate the tree

And light the candles bright.

We sing this song and clap our hands

Because it’s Christmas night, Oh-

Christmastime, Christmastime!

Christmas time is here!

We have sun and lots of fun

When we have Christmas here!

Christmas time! Christmas time!

Christmastime is here!

We have sun and lots of fun

When we have Christmas here!
