Christmas Activities ~ Days 9 and 10!!!

Day 9:  Recycled Snowman!


- 3 recycled white plastic bottle lids
- hot glue gun
- strip of recycled material ( use some of the scraps from the previous projects)
- 2 googly eyes
- black marker
First ~ We read "Frosty the Snowman" a Classic Golden Book that is 
Cute, Imaginative, and Fun for little ones!
Step 1:  Hot glue the white lids together
Step 2:  Glue the fabric on the middle (top)
Step 3:  Cut a black piece into a hat shape and glue on the top.
Step 4:  Glue the wiggly eyes
Step 5:  Draw the dots (buttons) and mouth
Step 6:  Glue a piece of string on the back portion.
Finally, revisit the story of Frosty!!

Day 10:  December 10th was a Special Day for our family as we celebrated my husbands birthday!! We tried to make it as much fun as possible.  With that, we made reindeer donute or, as you will, Rudolph Donuts.  (Oh, the things that my husbands sufferes through with a teacher as a wife). 
Very simple and fun!!
- Store bought maple or chocolate donuts.
- Two large wiggly eyes  (edible ones can be found in the bakery section...the ones in picture are not)
- One red peanut M & M
- Two pretzels.

~ It was a cute way to show, I love you! My son had a field day with Rudolph.  Making edible animals and/or other fun creations have such a comical and interesting way to add a little flavor towards any activity.  ~ No pun intended!!
