The Best Time of the Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!!!
I've been so bad about blogging the last few weeks.
Sooo here's a little recap. :)
This is my FAVORITE time of the year!!!

We made these adorable little reindeer!
My kids had so much fun making them. 
They really loved adding snowflakes. :)

We had a gingerbread man day!
How much candy can you fit on your gingerbread man??? ;)

Our class elf made us these stockings.
Have you seen the fireplace videos on YouTube?!
My kids were warming up their hands haha.
I love them. <3
(I also think the fire kept them calm that day.....you should try it!!)

We spread lots of holiday cheer!

These were our parent gifts.
They're super easy to make!

To wrap them, we used Krista's little winter toppers!!!!
SO easy and adorable!

Then came Christmas!
We've had three Christmases so far.....one more to go! :)

Here's Christmas at my mom's!

I love these three!! :)

Then we had Christmas at my dad and stepmom's!!

(in 3 days.......I can say we're getting married THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!)
<3 <3 <3 <3

 I know you've been waiting for this one......
Merry Christmas from Moo!

I hope your Christmas was filled with family, friends, and lots of love & smiles!

Needs & Wants Stockings!

Happy Tuesday!!!
We've been learning about needs and wants over the last few weeks.  
To wrap up our unit, the kids made these little Needs and Wants Stockings!!

A few of them tried to say they need toys and candy. ;)

It was a fun little review, plus they look nice and festive in our classroom! :)

After we made the stockings, we wrote about things that we NEED and WANT.
A few said they needed me because I teach them. <3 <3 <3 <3
I love them! :)

How many days do you have until break?

Freestyle Santa {freebie!}

Are you counting down the days until winter break?!
I have a super fun project your kids will love!
This is my all-time FAVORITE project!
I get so many compliments on it each year!
Check out these adorable little Santas!

They look a little complicated to make, but I promise it's not as hard as it looks!
I always start by modeling how to make Santa using basic shapes.

Then the kids go for it!

I just LOVE how they each come out so different and unique!
This year, we wrote letters to Santa to go with them.

Here are some step-by-step instructions so your kids can make them too. :)

 I hope your kids love them!!
