Check out my "Christmas Post #1!" for more ideas and projects!
Last week, my students made elves, fingerprint candy canes, and Christmas trees.
For this projects, I cut several pieces of construction paper. I used different lengths and demonstrated how to assemble the trees. The children first sorted the pieces out from the longest to the shortest. They ripped brown construction paper for the tree trunk.
They used glue to make "lights" and designs, a star, which they later covered in glitter. FUN!!!!
They had lots of sequin to decorate their tress, as well.
I gave the kids red and white paint and bows. They used their cute little fingers to create candy canes.
Easy and fun!
