My favorite time of year is finally here!!! The first thing I do, after I get all gitty, is grab the construction paper, scissors, and glue…
The first thing I had the girls do was the traditional chain link. My preschooler was put on glue duty. We cut strips and put them into a pattern. She learned to grab the proper strip (in accordance with the pattern) and glue them. This gluing duty also helped her to know how much glue to use; she use to put a gallon on the paper. My 7 year old would grab the glued strip and make the chain.
Next up we made a Christmas tree for our front window. I put my preschooler on cutting out ornaments. I thought this would help her to learn how to use the scissors. Look at her, she id really focused:
This little one helped out too. She got to color on the scraps.
We wanted to make a bigger tree, so I taped 3 pieces of paper together and here is my 7 year old cutting away. After the tree she helped her sister glue on the ornaments and cut out a star…
Here is our finished product. The girls thought it would be nice to make presents to put under the tree.
We have a lot more to do; Holly, candles, snow flakes, snow family, etc… I’ll try and post pics as the get done.
