Preschool Made Christmas!

**IF YOU ARE A CURRENT PARENT IN MY PRESCHOOL STOP READING!!  THERE ARE SPECIAL SECRET GIFTS THAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VIEW YET! :)**


Ahem, anyways...
 We've made a few different varieties of ornaments and other decorations in the last couple of weeks.  Some of which will be gifts for the parents and some are just for fun.  Many of them were "Pinspirations", some are ones we've made year after year.

Here are two different versions of a Popsicle tree ornament:  

I hot glued the pieces together then the children painted and we added colorful sequins, a jingle bell top and ribbon.  I also put a photo of each child in the center of the triangle. 

This tree was a fun way to do size order. I gave each child a pile of sticks  and had them glue them in order from biggest to smallest.  After that they added sequins, jingle bell top and a ribbon on the back.  I found this idea here! (we put our own preschool spin on this one! :))
How cute are these?!?
These were my favorite!  Why had I never thought of these before??  I had pinned them and then immediately gathered my materials, had the children collect sticks for the antlers and we got busy!  
We needed a creative and clever way of wrapping these ornaments up....
I cut the top of a square tissue box off and the kids hand stamped some brown craft paper.  With a little bubble wrap those reindeer are ready for gifting! :)
Cute and simple.  Here is a poem that can go along with your santa. 

Here is a cute little decoration we made

The beard was made with strips of computer paper.  It curls really easy with scissors!  I found this idea over here!  Again, our own preschool spin! :)



We are having our annual Polar Express Christmas party the next two days!  Kids are excited! 
This is what we are making at our party this year:
You can find the template for the cute printable's here
Merry Christmas!  See you in the new year!
