Welcome back. I am teaming up with my Georgia friends to bring you December Sharing Sunday goodies and freebies. Click through to gather your gifts, and then click back to the Primary Peach for more fab gifts and ideas for under your teacher tree!
First up for me is my favorite all time books for Christmas. One is the Soldiers Night Before Christmas, a sweet story of a Sergeant that plays the role of Santa to all the deployed and homesick soldiers. I have 3 copies of this book, one for each my children. It truly is a wonderful story to share, and if you have a loved one deployed or away, bring your tissues. The other book is the traditional Twas the Night Before Christmas. I love this particular one because it features a Santa drawn for a Coca-Cola tribute from 1931 to 1964.
This next little goodie is the BEST activity for your holiday party. It's my Sleepy Potion activity. I follow the recipe and as I pour them into a large mixing bowl (I usually get one from the cafeteria), the fun begins. Adding the ingredients 1 by 1 and with HUGE over-exaggeration, I talk about how it will make them very sleepy. The effect of the dry ingredients as it mixes is like a magic show. The kids can take turns mixing "potion" and add their wish to the mix. Once completed, scoop about a cup of the mix into a decorative zip tight bag. Attach the provided page for them to read to their loved ones.
