It seems like forever since I've posted (and maybe it has been....can't even begin to tell you how busy/crazy this year/season has been) So I wanted to give you a little peek into our last week.
We made 2 different ornaments as gifts for parents
These were super easy and turned out cute!
I also had them do themselves floating away on snowflakes...
These turned out so funny and the kids loved doing them...again, super simple and easy which was what I needed this year as I have been battling being sick for over a week and haven't had the brain/planning power or energy to do anything else...lol.
The kids wrote persuasive letters to Santa applying for an elf position from this packet from
SUPER fun freebie! Of course I forgot to take pics, but trust me, they loved it! Some of my kids have such a great sense of humor. They were also VERY convincing in trying to apply to be an elf:)
Of course we also HAD to get in a STEM activity:) They just loved this one!
This is another great activity from Get Caught Engineering. This is from their Charming Bundle of Enchanted Engineering packet. Their job was to build a boat to get the Gingerbread man across the stream so he isn't eaten by the fox;)
They did this activity in pairs!
I LOVE, LOVE how they work together....I LOVE, LOVE how they have to figure out the problem with their "invention" and go back to the drawing board and try something else! I LOVE, LOVE how doing these activities teaches them patience and perseverance:)
Here are a few videos of the fun!
For those of you that have a few days left, maybe this will give you a few ideas to do;) To the rest of you that are off for break, YAY!
Too all of you....I hope you all have a very blessed and Merry Christmas! I am happy because my girl is home! Such a blessing to have the family all together for Christmas!
From my family to yours...Merry Christmas!
