The Moments from this Week

Cardboard Stars
 This last week as been a flurry of activity.  So much merry making has taken place.  I'm not gonna lie, I love this time of the year.  In addition to our Montessori working days we've added lots of making.  We've incorporated gift wrapping into our practical life work and metal insets into card making.
We've added some new projects this year and pulled some oldies but goodies from our stash of ideas.
Making Wool Wreaths
 It probably seems silly that we do all this but, our children really love it and the classroom really transforms into this incredibly beautiful place and there is such purpose and commitment int he work going on all around us.

Greater then all this though is the sense of wanting to give and the giving that is taking place with the children is sweet.  From simple notes to each other and from our elves to making and giving to family members.

We are ready to sign off for a few weeks now and decompress.  When the children return in January we will have a fresh new canvas to start with.  Everyone is tired and looking forward to down time with their families.  Wishing you all a most Wonderful Holiday!  xo~michelle

Painted Glass Ball Ornaments

 I really loved doing the painted glass ball ornaments this year.  They were easy and instantly everyone's was unique and beautiful.

I am sharing this incredible drawing as I just can not believe that a four year drew this!  But she did.  This is what Christmas is for her and it is obviously on her mind and in her thoughts right now.  Such a great drawing!
