On the 9th day of Christmas…

g3.jpg  Kindergarten crafts!!!!  Here are some photos from the gingerbread house making day.  It was a fun but insanely crowded and chaotic time with lots of sticky fingers and candy EVERYWHERE!!!!  All of the kindergarten kids were lined up in tables in their hallway with about a bazillion parents there to help.  Edison got to sit next to Emily who he now says is his “third” friend…in line after Aidan and Jonathan (whom Edison is convinced are brothers b/c they dressed the same on Halloween — I try to point out they have different mothers & fathers (all of whom Edison has met) but to him that is of no consequence.  They were BOTH DARTH VADAR, MOM!!!   Ok, Edison…

Emily & Edison



This mom (all the way to the right if you need directions…mom of Aidan – “#1 friend”, in fact) is so small that she comfortably sat in the miniscule kindergarten chairs.  Astonishing.  I couldn’t stop looking at her hanging out on that tiny chair not looking much older than maybe 2nd grade….

By the way, he has already eaten the entire house (except for the non-parell on the roof….he gave that to me).

  1. I got a little sweaty & stressed looking at that the photo of the hallway. I haven’t quite adapted to being comfortable in those kinds of “mom situations.” Regardless, it looks like it was fun… and very funny about the mini-mom.

    What a fabulous idea. Chaotic defintely. I teach 5-K and think this would be a great family involvement project. Was everything donated by the parents? We mad the lights with names but made them into necklaces. I like them hanging from the ceiling. Very festive!

    I would like to know the directions for the light bulb names in the hallway.


  8. The gingerbread house making day looks like so much fun! I can just imagine the chaos though. What a great way to involve the parents in their child’s learning though. I love the Christmas light names. I think I will do them and use them as our class decorations this year. Thanks for the idea!

  12. […] Light Bulbs: Use construction paper to cut out light bulb shapes. Then add each student’s name to a light bulb. Use wire to string them along the classroom. It adds bright decorations and fits in with the holiday season. […]
