funny how that works: a candy cane turned upside down looks like a letter J (or a backwards J in this case)!
how convenient for J week.
we cut and glued red and white striped fabric to J shapes…or wait, are they candy cane shapes?
we’ll use these as a prop at our christmas circle time parties this week. fun stuff coming!
well, our beloved water heater box became a tunnel and then moved to the recycling bin.
good thing we had another box to wrap. lots of tape and gifted wrapping paper were used to hide “every bit of box.”
then we played this game:
one child (or teacher!) hides in the box…
everyone else walks around the box…
we sing this song:
(to the tune of “all around the mulberry bush”)
all around the christmas box
who could it be?
it’s almost time to find out
when we count to three:
then we stop walking and count
and then the box child pops out and general cheering ensues!
it never mattered that we knew who was in the box…still exciting!
enjoy this horrible quality movie:
we had a funny face activity that was perfect for our funny f week when we came in costume (all week long!):
(during our costume week, i draw pictures of them…those are funny)
when the preschoolers arrived, the couch had paper that needed to be balled up.
as the beginning work time went on, each child picked one forehead, one pair of eyes, one nose and one mouth.
these were images i found on line and printed at home, then trimming to the width of a paper bag.
only during the project did i realize that one of the woman faces was actually a “most wanted” image. that was weird.
pick one nose? that’s funny.
then these were glued to one side of a paper bag.
after the glue dried a bit, we stuffed the bags with the crumpled up paper, scrunched and taped up the opening of the bag to use as a handle.
then it was time for our funny face poem. oh, mr. matt, you look extra funny with your shaggy wig on.
you might think i’m just a funny face looking right at you,
but really it’s me, i’m about to say…..BOO!
yes, i recommend this project and i look forward to doing it again!
