Here's a super cute, and easy to prep activity for the last week of school this December. My Grade two class were able to do the coloring, cutting and gluing activities very easily, and I twisted the arms and legs for them. It would be an easier activity with older students.
And just look at them. Aren't they adorable?
I just couldn't resist taking a few closeups.

When I was prepping for this post, I started thinking about all the little personalities that shine through with each individual Santa. Maybe I'm going crazy because of how high and excited all the students are every day. They can sense the anticipation and are ready for the holidays. So if you'll bear with me here, I'm feeling a bit giddy, and silly. Perhaps its the holiday cheer I partook of last night at the staff Christmas party!??!
Yeah, I know, they're all surprised. This one just seems particularly so.
Angry Surprised Santa?

I'm not sure why, maybe it's because of the particular child that made this one, but he looks a bit angry to me. Maybe he's angry because his ears were chopped off?

This one took extra time to curl that beard this morning.
And he even applied extra color to his ruby lips.
Too Much Holiday Cheer Santa.
Check out that red nose!
And my goodness, Santa is looking a bit pale here. Perhaps his Christmas party was as fun as mine was last night. Even the photo is out of focus for a touch of extra artistic flair. And his beard is a bit scrunched. Maybe Santa tripped and fell on his face?

This ones a bit red in the face. Did someone find him
