so I made some treats last week.
Here's the post - snowmen and dreidels.
After I made my simple dreidels..Dawn at Not Just A Mommy
(who has a fab new look, btw)
showed me Martha Stewart's dreidels.
Let's just say, they make mine look weak!
Fast forward to Monday.
I listen to some of the kids read at the lizard's preschool
then I read a few books to the whole class.
I brought in a book about Hanukkah today.
It was the perfect chance to 'fancy' up my dreidels.
Here's what I came up with..I just added sprinkles.
The kids loved them & that's all that matters.**
**We are having our annual Hanukkah party on Thursday...
there may be a part tres :)
Speaking of our party, here are a few peeks of the prep work.
Since most of my parties are geared toward the under-10 crowd,
I like to come up with things to keep them busy.
food colored pasta..good for making 'jewelry' and/or works of art.
Star shaped crayons (made from broken bits).
I'll have coloring pages too.
Our dreidel 'board'..
I made this last year to give the kids a confined place to play.
Just posterboard with glued on big dreidels.
If you haven't checked out apples4theteacher.com - you should.
It's a great resource! For all holidays and occasions.
Plus you can add color to their coloring pages then print.
I've even customized the dreidels with everyone's favorite football colors :)
These are milk cartons from Frog Prince Paperie.
These are filled with gelt (chocolate coins) and a dreidel.
The entire Hanukkah set is great - can't wait to get it all set up.
I hope everyone is having a great week so far...
it's finally cold in Florida (and I'm already complaining - haha)
