Hello everyone, it’s time for another special lesson intro! We do a lot of crafts as part of our education at Sunrise. Here are some of the crafts we made in preparation for the big Christmas Party at Sunrise!
We always make some hats for the kids at Sunrise. This year the Caterpillar class (2-3 y/o) made elf hats.
The cut out all the pieces and (with a little help) made them, which was great scissor practice.
And the Butterflies made Santa hats!
They painted them…
Added Santa’s body (think Disneyland)…
And then we added some cotton!
The Butterflies also made some musical instruments…some Jingle bell snowmen!
They sewed them together very carefully. The Shiny class (4 y/o) used yarn…but the Fluttery class (5 y/o) used a needle and thread! Some of them were amazing at it! We drew on some faces, added a hat and tied on some bells!
The Caterpillars made some really nice Christmas trees. The cut the green paper and added the stickers by themselves!
Finally…time for the Christmas party! Everyone put on your hats!
And of course, for our Christmas party the kids practiced some songs. The Caterpillars sang Jingle Bells and then did an instrumental to “Deck the Halls” with bells and castanets.
The Butterflies practiced very hard too. They sang “Must be Santa” and “Frosty the Snowman” Aha! That’s why we needed those snowmen!
After that we played a fun winter game called “Flip the cards”. The green team had to make all of the cards green. The red team had to make all of the cards red…It was an intense competition!
Finally, after the kids went to the bathroom they sat down…and found a letter from Santa…it said to call his name…
I think they heard something…they were really excited…and suddenly….
The kids had a lot of questions for him.
And…he had lots of presents for our kids! Naturally, the kids were happy!
Merry Christmas everyone!
It was a busy month, but it was worth it!
