I haven't shared about the crafts and activities from the nature center for awhile. The first week in December we did 'evergreen trees'. We try to make the theme seasonal without being holiday oriented... this gets creative at times. We read these two books:
And made this easy paper craft:
It's just two pieces of paper cut into identical shapes of Christmas or evergreen trees. One pieces gets slit half way from the top down, the other slit half way from the bottom up. Decorate. Slide together.
Here they are on our kitchen table with the advent candle holder and the kids paper wreaths from the library hanging above.
I have two lovelys, Bee (8) and Lou (7). I currently teach 3rd grade after having been home with my kiddos and happily teaching preschool. In my life before kids, I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 6th grades. I am striving to find a balance between home and school thus this poor blog is often times neglected. I have a neglected etsy shop, I sew, craft, bake, and garden all to keep my sanity. I run, hike, and climb trees. I'm a wanna be soap maker and some day chicken owner.
