The children made beads out of white clay and painted them. We added some colored macaroni and there it is - a Christmas necklace! We tucked them into small jewelry boxes to be sent home for the holidays. I just loved how they turned out!

The first week of every December we do a gingerbread unit. We read The Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread Baby and wonder if any of our gingerbread cookies will escape the oven during baking. When they came out of the oven, we carefully counted to make sure all were there.
