Adorable Santa Paintings

My kinders had so much fun painting Santa during art this week!  1st we wrote letters to Santa, and then we painted!  We did the paintings step by step with me modeling one color at a time.  We cut skin colored ovals for his face and glued them in the middle of the green paper.  Next, we used pencil to draw eyes, noses, mouths.  We did everything very slowly.  We painted the white parts first and added the red last.  We mixed a tiny bit of red with our white to make the cheeks!  I love how different each one is.
Merry Holidays!!!!!

Oh Christmas Tree Freebie!

I am always looking for some fun ideas for a class book, so I made this little Christmas Tree.  I had my students use the circles (ornaments) on the tree to write the letters in their first names.  They could use sharpie and then color over it with crayons.  I told them to use any colors they wanted.  Most chose green for their trees, but I have to say I love the purple and black one!
Merry Holidays!
