Christmas in Mexico and on the 3rd Day of Christmas...

Today was all about Christmas in Mexico.  We read The Legend of the Poinsettia and talked about Las Posadas.  One of my favorite art activities for Christmas in Mexico is the poinsettia.  We have a pattern that we trace before hand.  Each child needs 3 red petals and 1 green.

They cut out the petals.


Then we glue them in the middle like this:
 

At the end I add dots of glue and glitter...so pretty!


When we finish, we display them like this:


I think they are so pretty! :) 

What are your elves up to?
This is where Jolly was today:


Today my kids were very talkative and got a awful report in Music, so instead of Jolly they will see this tomorrow:


Hopefully I'll have better things to report tomorrow!
