What fun! Just remember “Silly Rabbit, Easter is about Jesus.”
Their journal entry was to draw the Easter story. They drew eggs and bunnies. Then we hunted huge eggs that had items in them that told the real Easter story. Afterwards we discussed what they thought it was about and we couldn’t understand the Easter bunny thing. We did a scratch art rainbow cross and decorating egg cookies. We hunted unfilled eggs with the goal of finding all the eggs. Over 200 eggs were hidden. The project was a fluid painting (pour painting) on an egg shape canvas. They were put on display at church for Easter Sunday
Our journal entry was about something we thought would be impossible to do. We talked about our favorite superheroes and what it takes to be a real superhero. Our new superhero is Jesus and we want to be just like him. We also started our unit on papermaking. The first step is drying out natural items to put in the paper. They learned how to press flowers. We also watered our garden and even had time to play on the playground.
Mixing white with basic colors to get pastel colors.
We are getting a head start for march with rainbow sprinkle cookies. Children are always extremely focused when sprinkles are involved!!
We made valentines for some of the church staff and decorated some cookies with edible ink. We planned out our puppet play and started on the scripts and parts.
It’s all about hearts and love!
These hearts are the finished pour paint activity we worked on.
We decorated a chair with silly string. We mixed up a big batch of salt dough and made hearts with cookie cutters. The students worked on their puppet play too. We also started talking about manners because we are having a teddy bear tea party on the 10th of February
January 6th Creative Christians celebrated Epiphany by making crowns and talking about what gifts they could give Jesus. They decided on being helpful and loving to everyone. They were very helpful cleaning up our many messes from making paper snowflakes, crowns and snowmen. We also had a snowball fight in the fellowship hall. We used XX-Large white Pom poms. Cindy Bryant helped with the glue dots used on the large jewels for the cardboard crowns. We read a teary eyed story about snow angels and studied a book about the unique intricate trait of snowflakes and how they have the same uniqueness.
We made Christmas sugar cookies
Pour paint is paint with additives that break down the cells of the paint. A dirty pour paint (which is what we did) is when your layer the paint in a cup and pour it on the surface. The paint doesn't mix but travels into spontaneous designs.
