We are gearing up for the Jolly ol' Elf to Visit! We read "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement C. Moore and Richard Jesse Watson, sang the "Lion Hunt" song and then made our very own countdown Santa calendars. Kids will use these by filling in Santa's beard with a cotton ball every day in December until it's the Night Before Christmas. Check out some of their work. I am pretty sure the glitter was the hit of the project.
