This week has been a fun holiday filled week. We snuggled up every night & watched a different Christmas movie and yesterday went to the library to pick out holiday books. When we got home we read our new books and listened to Christmas carols.
We got to listen to one of my favorite carols, which is ‘the 12 Days of Christmas’ This is a holiday song my daughter doesn’t know very well yet. She listened to me sing & asked “What’s a partridge?” I told her it was a bird. “I can make that” she told me. I asked her if she wanted to make the partridge & the pear tree. She did, of course.
Since we are still living with our little friend Ashley while our house is in the final stages of construction, Ashley joined us for holiday crafts.
As I told you before, my daughter is very into cutting these days. She will take every opportunity that she can to use her scissors. She wanted to make the pear trees out of cut paper, so she cut green & red construction paper into little pieces, while Ashley & I tore some.
I cut out trunks for everyone out of brown construction paper & I cut out a big blue circle as a back drop & a guide for placing the pieces of paper.
I gave the kids glue sticks & let them glue away.
I cut out small pear shapes for them as well & they added them to their trees. They drew their own partridges with markers.
For my tree, I decided that I was going to make a footprint partridge.
I painted both girl’s feet in blue & pressed them onto a piece of paper.
I proceeded to turn them both into partridges.
I cut around the partridges & added them to my trees.
