I mostly manned the cookie decorating station. Since I was in a baking frenzy anyway I just cranked out another 3 dozen gingerbread men for the kids to decorate and take home for a treat.
Jocelyn (Zara's mom) and I cut out all these pieces of felt in advance, and Sarah (Gabe's mom) worked with them to make these little felt mice with a candy cane as its tail. Thank you, Martha Stewart, for yet another adorable craft idea!
Dierdre (Serena's mom) rose to the challenge and came up with a fun craft for New Year's - silly foam glasses the kids decorated to ring in 2013.
Charlene (Rosie's mom) gathered some decorations and collected some books about Christmas, Hanukkah and winter to read to the class. The kids sat on the rug listening to stories while having home made potato latkes from Sarah and other treats like Jello and Oreo pops that I made.
I think everyone's favorite craft was making a glass globe terrarium ornament like we had seen at the Botanic Gardens last year. Ours were nowhere near as gorgeous as theirs, but these were fantastic none-the-less. More on that later!
Well, we trashed her room with soil and glitter and icing and cookie crumbs, but Miss Rockwell took it in stride and seemed pleased with our little shindig. Next up I get to start working on our class creation for the annual auction!
