I'm the Room Mom for Little Man's class this year. It's actually a pretty involved job :) We plan all major holiday parties and crafts and get the parents to help pay for or donate their time and money for said parties. (That is actually more difficult than you'd imagine.)
The Christmas Party was scheduled for this Friday but one of the kids is moving and our teacher, Ms. Carson, is going to Hawaii for Christmas vacation this week so we moved the party to today.
Our craft was a Christmas tree ornament. I got fat green popsicle sticks and hot glued them in a triangle. Then I added red and green pipe cleaners for the "hook" and a brown construction paper trunk. Last week I went in and took pictures of each kiddo and last night I hot glued all of their cute little faces into the middle of the "tree". Then today we let the kids decorate their trees with sequins, stickers, and jewels. They turned out super cute!
We got the kids McDonalds happy meals for a "special" lunch and then had them decorate a sugar cookie for dessert.
One of the grandmothers even came in today and did face painting for the kids making them each look like a reindeer.
The kids had a great time and so did the parents and the ornaments turned out even cuter then I thought they'd be :)
