What Our Subscribers Say:

I have truly loved the site.  I've been teaching in my family day care home for 23 years.  I've got loads of books and ideas, but I'm always looking for new and interesting ones.  I work with children who are learning to hold a crayon and play in pudding and others ( age 5) who can read at a second grade level.  So the many levels I teach takes a huge variety of ideas.  This is my second year as a member.  I thank you for your work in putting this site together.  Keep up the good work.

Make Your Own Christmas Ornaments
Children love to make Christmas crafts and help decorate the house. There are many ways to create your own Christmas ornaments. Here are some printouts to get you started. Trace and cut large ornament shape out of colored craft paper. Trace and cut two background circles out of a different colored craft paper. Print two ornament designs to color. Glue ornament designs on to the background circles. Glue circles on each side of the ornament shape. Make a hole at the top of the ornament, thread ribbon or yarn through, and hang from ceiling or tree.

Make a dough from applesauce and cinnamon. Press flat until it's about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with a gingerbread man cookie cutter and use a straw to punch a hole near the top. Lay flat to dry on wax paper. It will take about a week until the ornament is dry. Glue on decorations and attach a shiny red ribbon.


1/4 cup cinnamon
4 tbsp applesauce

Mix together cinnamon and applesauce. If the dough is too sticky to handle, add more cinnamon. If it's too dry, add more applesauce.

Santa's Helpers

“Welcome to Santa's Village," boomed a cheerful deep voice.
EarTwiggle and Lily looked up into the smiling, bearded face of
Santa Claus who was sitting in a big, comfy red chair.
"Thank you for coming to help us! These are some of my helpers,”
said Santa, looking around at the elves. One of the elves handed
EarTwiggle and Lily each a red jacket and a funny-looking pair of
"Hi, my name is Trip. Just put these clothes on. They will keep you
warm here in Santa's Village." EarTwiggle and Lily quickly pulled on
their elf clothes...
