Christmas Around the World

We are talking about Christmas Around the World this week and one of our stops is Germany where we are learning about their traditions with Gingerbread houses and men!  For our cooking project this week, we tried our own Gingerbread Men!

Next stop is Mexico, where we learned about how they use Pinatas and Poinsettias to celebrate!
Of course we have to learn about the Nutcracker as we pass through Russia!
The children had so much fun putting their shoes in the hallway before nap and waking up to find treats in their shoes!

We even learned about holidays celebrated at this time!
Such a fun display of some of the "stops" our Pre-K class made as they traveled the world!
The children could not understand how Christmas is Australia is celebrated in the Summer!  How fun!
Since we are in the Christmas spirit, "S" has to be for Santa!

Since it's cold outside, we are having some fun inside with art projects that make us say "Brrrrrrr!"
Winter art is even better when we pull Math and Language Arts in as well!
The kiddos had lots of fun with hands on activities!
It's a Winter Wonderland at Sunflower Station!  Our cooking project was Snowman biscuits.

R is for Rudolph, of course!
