FINALLY, my Christmas mix was a hit (and I didn't have much faith in it when I put it together)!
- Wrapping paper (cut into smallish pieces)
- Garland (also cut into smaller strips)
- Bows and ribbon
- $ store bauble ornaments (plastic so they won't break easy - I'd say they're unbreakable, but with preschoolers you never know...)
- Plastic candy canes (also found at the $ store and I need more!)
- Bell ornaments
What I observed:
Lots of sorting, hiding, finding, crumpling, AND...
Bell Banging, using the plastic candy canes for percussion (accompanied by beautiful singing)
(using the candy canes as hangers)
Tracing???... someone took the candy canes on a field trip to our art table for some tracing time - great idea!
