We made a shapely Santa in preschool

While having fun with holiday arts and crafts, we also used the opportunity to review our shapes…

We reviewed triangles and circles by making a Santa puppet from construction paper…

The children simply added a triangular shaped hat, some eyeballs…

Some of the children really like those eyeballs…

And of course, we added cotton balls to finish off our triangle Santa!

In another class, the children added a circle for Santa’s nose…

And more cotton balls…

To make another shapely Santa Clause!

You can also make a Star Santa! See this great post from Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning!

And how about a triangle reindeer too!

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.'
