Christmas through the eyes of Childrenby Adventurous Learning Childcare on 11/25/17
This time of year is magical through the eyes of children. It brings me such joy to just watch the wonder in the children's eyes!
I buy a tree and have it all set up to surprise the children when they come to school. We decorate it with ornaments given to me from the families. Home made are my favorite. During this season we make hand made ornaments and hang them on our tree, they then get to take them home at the beginning of Christmas break. This year we are closed Dec. 25th and Dec 26th.
I buy and wrap a simple gift for them. I ask them to find their name under the tree. (name recognition) I love the excitement when I tell the children they have a gift under our tree.
They also love making a gift for their family. I feel it is important to share with them the joy of giving.
In addition to our learning routines, this time of year brings the excitement of the season that is so wonderful through the eyes of a child.
