Nativity Ornaments/Letters

Christmas time seemed like the perfect time to complete #2 under serving others "Write a letter to a teacher, your parents or your grandparents telling them what you appreciate and respect about them."

We planned a few different activities, it was quite a bit.. .so I recommend choosing just one or two. We divided the room into four different stations:

#1 - The girls could write their letter on a fun Christmas card. We sent them home so their parents could help address and mail them.

#2 - The girls made these darling Christmas nativity ornaments out of tiny wreaths, felt, wooden star and balls, grass and pipe cleaners! (I will post a photo later! They are really cute.)

#3 - The girls could snack on hot chocolate and cookies.

#4 - The girls could journal to get ideas for their letter.

Finally, at the end, this is where we ran out of time, we had the girls summarize their favorite Christmas stories. (Next year I hope to just have the girls share their favorite stories. They were kind of bummed they couldn't read them.)
