Deck the Halls

Pinterest is great!  So many ideas shared, easy to organize and fun to make your own.  Here’s another idea I found and offered to our families.
First Grade Blue Skies made a simple ornament art bulletin board.  I thought it would look great on our new bulletin board in the hallway.
I had some lick and stick circles from long ago and finally decided to use them.  I don’t know if you can still buy them anymore because some of the parents were encouraging their child to use a glue stick to apply them.  But licking is much more fun.
I found paper tape at a dollar store that is easier for the children to pull then cut.  I noticed they use less with this tape then the really sticky tape.
This picture touched me because it shows that many parents in our program really believe it takes a community to raise a child.  This is not her daughter nor is she the caregiver but she saw a child in need and offered to help.
Using ribbons and only stapling it at the top allows movement when people walk pass.  Sometimes we walked out to add another ornament and some of the existing ones would be moving and others were backwards.  Kind of like ornaments on a tree.
