Wishing You all a Very Merry Christmas from The Beach Buddies!

Sunday, December 21, 2014

 This last week before Winter break has been busy! 
Santa even came on Friday to wish us a Merry Christmas.


We finished up out travels "Around the World" visiting Germany by making Tannonbaum hats and visiting Sweden to enjoy St. Lucia day.


We sewed stockings from the USA and finished up our covers for 
Santa Goes Shopping! and reindeer books.

 During our holiday party we made reindeer food. (Oatmeal , birdseed and a few dashes of glitter to light the way for Santa's reindeer to find our homes!)

 We also decorated our Tannonbaums from Germany.(trees) 
Yes... they are a bit messy but oh so yummy!


During our party we also made we these darling snowman ornaments. The have been all over Pinterest for years and I finally made them. We painted their hand-prints on Tuesday so on Friday they would be all dry and ready to decorate with colored sharpies. Each one so unique and darling.
Wishing you all a joyous, family filled, RESTFUL vacation!

Gingerbread Man and More Holiday Fun!

Sunday, December 14, 2014


 Who can resist the Gingerbread Man during the holidays!
 We have read 7 different versions, tasted gingerbread cookies and made this darling glyph. Get the Glyph Key Here.


On Thursday we had our 3rd Grade Buddies come to kinder to make this great project by Tangled up in Teaching. This activity goes along with Jan Brett's version of the The Gingerbread Baby.
It was perfect for a 3rd grader to help their kinder partner. Lots of cutting and a graph to complete.


My friend Heidi has a darling new Gingerbread Man 
book with a CD and lots of  fun songs!


I got my SantaReindeer and Elves up! My room definitely has a holiday feel with these cuties hanging around. 


We were busy little elves last week. I had three amazing mommies who got all my kiddos hands painted for their wreaths in one morning! Tonight I added a dowel, ribbon bows and gold for their names.  (This is why I'm working on a post at 11:00 at night) All we have to do is wrap! The picture on the left is our wrapping paper made with paint and cookie cutters. Our card is also an ornament from their "little angel."


Here are two versions of  gingerbread men and hand print quilts. One is from Kinder and the other from Tk!
Off to bed for me...
