Countdown to Christmas

With today being the last day of November, we spent today working on a Christmas Countdown project that the kids can do at home with their families starting tomorrow. I think they turned out super cute!

We decorated a plate with Christmas colors, added this poem

"Each evening after prayers are said,
take off one ring and jump in bed.
When only the star is left to shine,
then you'll know it's Christmas-time!

Next we colored and added a star and a chain of 24 links - one for each day between tomorrow and Christmas! I know each kiddo will love doing their countdowns with Mom and Dad!

We made one for here, too, and will get lots of counting practice as we watch the links disappear!

Our hand-print tree also gained some more ornaments.

I am also excited to see a lot more cooperative play and working together - especially as friends build with blocks together! I Love it!

Tomorrow - we'll explore the color yellow and the crescent shape as well as some more Christmas fun!
