Christmas stockings and trees

Posted: December 9, 2008 in Christmas, Holidays, Playgroup

Today, Dec 8, at playgroup we made cute stocking and trees. The stockings were made of construction paper and the kids got to glue cotton balls on for the top of the stocking. Then they browsed the sale ads for toys and things they wanted for Christmas and they cut them out and glued them to the stocking. Now keep in mind, we have already written Santa a letter and told the many Santas what we wanted this year. So this craft just added to my stress. 🙂 After the stockings were complete they were each given a sugar cone to ice with icing and decorate with mini M&Ms and Twizzlers. Ok so Z did not put any Twizzlers on his tree, he just ate them as fast as he could. That is by the way that kid’s FAVORITE candy! And K was so gracious to give Z the unused Twizzlers to take home. That kid was in HEAVEN!  Then after the crafts were complete the kids went outside to play. They even all got a turn to wear C’s Batman costume. What a huge hit! We had such a great time at K and C’s house today. Thanks K!
