Yes, I did it. I went overboard last Tuesday,(I'm a little behind). I can just see all those teachers shaking their heads and wagging their fingers at me. Oh well--It's got to happen once in a while, right?
So here is what I did. Our last day in class was Thursday. So, we had to get the parent's Christmas gifts wrapped. I always find this task a little ho-hum, but well, it has to be done. I take a large piece of construction paper, put the gift in it, we decorate it and then the children write their name on it.
I wanted to add something fun, maybe have glitter. I also have been wanting to do the angel I posted last year, so I thought I would do that. Instead of using handprints, I used a doilie. I had the children cut out the triangle for the angel's body, cut the doilie in half for the angel's wings, glue the pieces toghether, and add a glitter halo.
The children did wonderfully, but I was EXHAUSTED! I won't do that again.
