If it's the Christmas season, you know there is lots of glitter in the classroom. I just love making crafts with glitter; they're so sparkly. But, my favorite part is the looks on the children's faces. They love to see the final transformation of the project when the glitter is added.
Last week, when I forgot my camera, we made the egg carton Christmas tree ornament. This is where you take an egg carton, insert a pipe cleaner through the top, paint it with glue, then sprinkle lots of glitter.
Then we created gifts for our parents. We did this last year too, but I don't want to spell it out yet in case any of them are reading. (Like the children didn't go home and tell them already.)
Then today we had more glitter with our Christmas stockings. I still have glitter on my face. (So why is it when I have glitter on my face it's funny and no one thinks I'm a supermodel?)
This is a big favorite of mine. We "sew" the stocking together, add some cotton at the top, then I write the children's names in glue and we add glitter. They LOVE this. Mouths are open in awe at the final product. The sewing can be a bit tedious, but they get through it.
(I'm supposed to WHAT?)I don't have any more glitter activities in the works. Maybe I can think of something:).
