This week has been all about Skip.. our classroom "magic elf". I feel like I say "calm down" twenty times a day.. but I do it to myself. How are they supposed to calm down when an elf is making a mess, leaving treats or just being mischievous. I am glad I did not start "the elf" the Monday after Thanksgiving like I had planned.. it's a full time job keeping up with "the elf". HA!
Last year I left this super easy reindeer craft project for my substitute to do and they turned out really cute. We made them again this year.. they are quick and easy but turned out really cute. They are from Amy Lemon's blog.
Thursday was December 12th.. we made a 12 bead bracelet to remember
12 months in the year
12 things in a dozen
12 inches in a foot
We also made these cute Christmas tree ornaments out of scrapbooking paper.
As always, I love a weekend. I really, really really hope I can find the time to get some presents wrapped and put under our bare tree. Right now, our cats have moved in. If they are awake and the tree is on they are under it. They love the tree skirt, the ornaments and the lights. They definitely have a little Christmas spirit.
Enjoy your weekend.
