Cute Christmas Art Ideas and Trinity Preschool Activities for Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012

Willow Room- Terrific 2's and 3's class

We read "Snowmen at Christmas" by Carolyn Buehner
We asked the children "What do you think the snowmen do at Christmas?"

We glued red tissue paper pieces and green triangles on a wreath shape.  We painted Christmas light shapes at the easel with glitter paint.

We practiced our holiday songs.
We did a special song "Santa, Santa, what do you see?"

Maple Room- Thursday class

We read "The gingerbread Bear" by Robert Dennis

We made doughnuts as a group project today. We followed a recipe, measured, and mix the ingredients to make doughnuts.

We did "down around the corner at the doughnut shop", "5 in the bed" and "Jingle Bells" for music time.

Oak Room- Pre- K class

We read "Gingerbread Baby" by Jan Brett ( a book on CD)

We painted gingerbread shapes, with pastel colored glue and shaving cream mixture.  We added ribbons, buttons, and beads to decorate our "gingerbread cookies".

We had out some board games with dice, a fruit pie sorting activity, and the letter "L" puzzle.

We did "5 little gingerbread" rhyme and "Down around the corner at the bakery shop" (with gingerbread shapes being what we bought.

We painted clay cookie shapes for our bakery.

We painted candy cane shapes at the easel.

Down around the corner rhyme:

Down around the corner at the bakery shop, all the yummy cookies with the sprinkles on top.  Along came _______ (name a child) with a penny to pay.  She took a cookie and went on her way.  (We change it up for doughnuts, cookies, pumpkins, Christmas trees, gingerbread men, etc. We give each child a penny to hold to pay- (Younger kids have the penny taped to a bigger card so we don't have to worry about them going into mouths)
