At the art table this morning we made collages. That was a new word for the children and a great way to talk about different symbols of the season.
Each container had garland, tinsel, pom poms, bows, felt pieces, ribbons, musical notes, and cut-outs from old Christmas cards. The instructions were to add pieces that remind each person of Christmas.
For some it was Santa Claus, candy canes and stockings.
For others it was the birth of Jesus.
And others spent the time practicing a new skill.
What I enjoyed about this activity was that it provided another opportunity to talk with families about their traditions at this time of year.
