Easy, pretty Christmas crafts


A little post to show you the lovely decorations in the daycare room where I work :) These are all neat Christmas crafts for kids!

Puzzle piece wreaths! (Glue puzzle pieces onto a paper plate with the center cut out, paint green, and glue on red beads for holly and a ribbon bow.)

image

image

A reindeer from each kid’s feet and hand prints! (Head is footprint; antlers are hand prints with the thumbs pointing out.)

image

The Christmas board turned out real pretty :D And has a string of real lights.

image

The kindergartners made lots of cool ornaments.

image

Snowflake from popsicle sticks and glitter
Reindeer from 3 puzzle pieces glued together and painted brown, google eyes and red pompom nose
Marker-colored paper ball
Silver dove on purple paper background
Paper angel with glittered wings

image

And this is one that I just put together- a Christmas tree made from puzzle pieces, painted and decorated :)

Merry Christmas!

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6 ~

Random thoughts #22: Oscar, kids think, & 7


“I’ll call him Oscar.”
“Oscar? You can’t name a lamb Oscar. You name a lamb Fluffy…or Cottonball…But you don’t name a lamb Oscar.”
-Paws & Tales kids radio show

“Ten days after I turned 8, got my lips stuck in a gate; my friends all laughed. And I just stood there until the fire department came and broke the lock with a crowbar and I had to spend the next 6 weeks in lip rehab where I met this kid named Oscar who got stung by a bee, right on the lips, and we couldn’t even talk to each other until the fifth week cuz both of our lips were so swollen. And when he did start speaking, he just spoke Polish, and I didn’t know but like 3 words in Polish, except now I know 4 – because Oscar taught me the word for lips.”
-Veggietales “I Love My Lips” silly song

Took me the longest time to figure out what Larry was saying in that ^^ monologue :roll: 

“He’s my pet and his name is Oscar. He’s mine.”
-kindergarten girl, of a fly buzzing around the room.

You don’t want to hear how these giraffe puppets took so much time and hassle to make. You just want to see the cute picture. So here you go. :-P
image

Bright teal and cherry red hibiscus make me ridiculously happy. :D

Going out of your way to step on and crunch the few dried deciduous leaves = fall in Southern California.

Wintery crafts are the best!

Me to two middle schoolers who were fighting: “It takes 2 to tango.”
One of the middle schoolers: “Yeah, but…but…it takes one to…play video games…”

If coffee is warmed in the microwave for 22 minutes instead of 2, the smell takes over 2 months to go away. :-P

“I call it, “Victory of Life”!” -kindergartener in a melodramatic voice, of a pattern she’d just decorated her paper with XD

According to a 1st grader, you can “speak Texas.” :-P

When the Carl’s Jr. root beer tastes like it’s been mixed with sweet tea :-?

Straightforward kindergartener: “Once I had something go in here [points to arm] that touched my blood to see if I could have eggs or not.”

“A hacker is someone who goes on a computer and makes your technology not work.” -2nd grader

Do you know how hard it is to arrange 7 things in a perfect circle?

Now a half circle or mountain, that’s not hard:   

 Speaking of 7, and of 7 stars, I really like how the symbol for Aragorn’s kingship is the same as Jesus’. 8)

I came across this verse in my daily Bible reading:

And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. -Revelation 1:16

That’s our Jesus!

Easy kid crafts: Igloo and Jellyfish


Some crafts we helped the kindergartners in daycare make. You can use these for the letters I and J, or as winter and animal crafts, or just as a fun activity anytime :)

Igloo

image

Glue a Styrofoam bowl to a base, and add a bent strip of cardboard to form the entrance.

image

Cover that with cotton balls, and add stuffing/batting for snow.

image

Jellyfish

image
These are coffee filters colored with markers, gotten barely wet, wrung out and laid flat to dry, then had thin strips of streamers glued around the edge. They’re then draped over a plastic or Styrofoam cup that’s been cut down to half its size.
image
Poke a hole through the filter and cup to secure both together and have a way to hang it up.

Random thoughts #21: Rain, Disney, & hilarious kids


Man’s voice on radio: “I was having lunch with my pastor, and she told me…” *double take* There is just so much wrong with that situation.

Waking up to the sound of rain is pure bliss.

“A bad memory is so awful.” -kindergartener

“You don’t know what’s in my head.”
“Your brain!”
“No, what I’m thinking.”
“Your brain HAS the thinking, duh!!”
-2nd graders

“So you’re saying that God’s the biggest of them all, and He’s on my team!!”
(Because sometimes you just need a Veggietales reminder :) )

Lasagna made with boiled matzah crackers. It’s a thing. And a pretty tasty thing, at that.

While playing “kitchen,” a kindergarten boy was being aggravating, setting the price of the toy eggs anywhere from $12 to $100 million, so an exasperated classmate responded with “Then I’ll use my powers and I’ll put them on your face.” XD

Playing a game with too few people has its challenges, as these kids discovered.
“Can I not be out when I’m out?”
“I’m a ball, bounce me at the wall.”

Sit-n-Sleep will beat any advertised price or your mattress is freeeeeeeeeee

Pretty sure a kindergarten girl just invented a Transformer fairy. 8-)

You know you’re a crafter when you look at clothes on the clearance rack not in terms of “will it fit me?” but like “that would be great for that other project!”

Don’t cross your eyes, because 1. Your eyes will fall out, or 2. They’ll stay crossed and you’ll see two of everything! (At least, so says a second grader :-P )

“Look at my green apple. It’s all green and shiny. My preciousssss!” The 1st grade girl who said this had no knowledge of Gollum, nor any idea how much she was cracking me up ;-)

I will find my way, I can go the distance
I’ll be there someday, if I can be strong
I know ev’ry mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I’ll be right where I belong

1st grade little boy: It’s so cloudy today!
Me: Yeah, I like cloudy days. How about you?
Him: No. Because you never know when it might rain.
Me: I like it when it rains. Don’t you like the rain?
Him: But…But there might be a thunder storm or a lightning storm!
Me: I love lightning storms! You don’t?!
Him: [completely baffled] No!! I don’t like any of those things! [runs off to play]
:-D

One 1st grader to another: “You sound like a henchman of a bad guy!”

Little girls playing a game of make-believe involving pretending to be pregnant, and making play cake: “I can only have 1 bite, cuz I got 3 babies in my stomach.”

Not-too-thrilled 2nd grader at snacktime: “Everything’s pumpkin now…so these are pumpkin crackers.”

Brother and sister, (1st and K) discussing play money received by the latter:
Brother: “You’re telling me you don’t know if they’re real?”
Sister: “They’re shiny…”
Brother: “Okay, then I guess they’re real.”
Take note, government :-P

For my mom, sisters and I, a “girls night out” consists of watching Disney princess movies…and soundly critiquing them based on the Bible ;)
