I am a mom of 4 kids(11,10,8 and 6)who taught preschool for 2 years.
I hope you can use this blog as a resource to find fun activities to do with your children. Some ideas are new, while others have been around a while. This is a place where I can store all our activities without having to actually have to store them in my attic. I hope you find some fun and easy ideas.
I do not know what got into me today. We did so many crafts. It was crazy, but we did have fun. This morning I put up one of our artificial trees and decided everything we put on it we are going to make. It started with that idea and went from there.
We made these out of foam (but construction paper would work fine). I cut the stockings and the white tops. We used a hole puncher to make the holes. The kids threaded it with yarn. I had to help my 2 year old with the threading but my other 3 did it fine. We glued on the top with craft glue and wrote their names with a marker. The hook is also yarn.
A Stocking For Jesus
It's not great deeds we do in life That matter very much, But the love in which we do them And the joy of those they touch !
So let's hang this stocking for the Lord, To honor him above! For Jesus did great deeds for us. And did them all with love !
Then maybe when we leave this life As every mortal must. We'll find the Saviors mantle hung With stocking just for us.
