Happy New Year!

I have been AWOL from the blog world for almost one week.

It feels like forever! I have some serious blog-stalking to catch up on.

I have been out of town for four days, visiting family. Now that I'm back, I am 'de-Christmasing' the house.

I will post again soon, with some great winter ideas. But, for now, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

May 2012 bring you health, happiness, and peace.

Wishy-Washy Art, Christmas Art, & Gingerbread Giveaway Reminder


Here is an art activity we did this week to go along with Mrs. Wishy-Washy's Christmas.

...and a class book that's become a fast favourite


Mitten Cards
These activities were led by a parent volunteer/former teacher. At one station, students made a Christmas card using mini clothespins, folded stock paper, elasticized string, and a mitten template.

Students coloured the mittens, cut them out, and pinned them onto the "clothesline".

'Stained Glass' Painting
At another station, students used different coloured paint in each section of a picture to emulate stained glass.

Christmas Tree Card

Students received a piece of scrapbook paper with this template on the back:


They cut out the strips and glued them onto folded cardstock, leaving a little space between each strip.

Don't forget to enter my Gingerbread Man giveaway. It ends on Friday!
Just join my blog and leave a comment that you are a new follower (or let me know that you already are following). If you have a blog & post about my giveaway on your blog, I'll enter your name twice!
Good luck!
