We made paper plate Christmas wreaths in preschool

The kindergarten class has been busy making all kinds of fun holiday goodies to decorate their room and when I stopped by today, I was able to catch them making these pretty paper plate wreaths.

They cut out the center of a paper plate then added lot’s of green tissue paper and a touch of red…

I noticed that most of the children used the end of an unsharpened pencil to shape their tissue paper squares first…

Then they pressed the tissue paper squares onto a dab of glue on their paper plate…

Some of the children worked very fast and finished their wreaths quite quickly – other children worked very slowly and meticulously.

And some children chose to use dark green tissue paper while others went with the light green. All the wreaths turned out wonderful!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
