During my morning commute, I flip between two different radio stations—back and forth and back and forth—looking for appealing music. About two weeks ago, one of “my stations” went to all Christmas music. I did a lot of grumbling and ranting and muttering about how we have to jump into every holiday way too early. I mean, I still have some Halloween candy in my cupboard and was just getting in the mood for turkey and stuffing. (I love stuffing.)
So I kept away from that station for the past two weeks, but this morning, I couldn’t find anything to listen to. So…I listened to the Christmas station, and now I’m feeling all festive. I’m ready to decorate a tree and wrap some presents! I know it isn’t right. I still haven’t had my stuffing yet! But I can’t deny that I’m starting to feel pretty Christmas-y.
To commemorate my early slide into the Christmas spirit, here’s a spiffy and simple Christmas craft: Have students cut out a simple house shape and then squeeze draping lines of glue on the shape. Next, instruct them to sprinkle glitter and hole-punched dots on the glue. These projects look super cute displayed on a wall with a nighttime snow scene!
Are you ready for the holidays?
