Happy New Year Everyone! Had a fabulous Pajama Day (for letter P week), drank hot cocoa for winter and shook our giggle shakers for New Year’s! Here’s to an awesome year to come.
Game on! What an outrageous celebration we had—the best! We started out by putting on our Santa hats & creating a Holiday Cup Craft. And then off to hear the “Little Christmas Elf” story and sing the Winnie the Pooh version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” And then we switched to our bell adorned Reindeer antlers to sing and perform Jim Reeves “Jingle Bells”, which encouraged us to dance around the tables to “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. Then we sang Raffi’s “It Must Be Santa.” And then we let the games begin. We first played THE PIZZA WALK (earning a present), and then a HOLIDAY MEMORY GAME (earning a yummy sweet treat) and then a BEAN BAG TOSS HOPSCOTCH (earning a holiday bag of fun). Then we had fun getting involved in a CHRISTMAS COOKIE DECORATING contest (winning a chocolate Santa). Then it was time for our HI PIZZA MAN story to prepare us for our surprise delivery person—who wasn’t a Pizza Snake like we suspected. And then on to our huge feast of; Pizza, chicken nuggets, fresh apples, raisins, fruit gummies and tortilla chips with dips, strawberry applesauce, chocolate pudding and fruit punch. Our bellies were more than satisfied. To wound down the day’s festivities we watched “Olive the Other Reindeer” opened our stockings that Santa filled last night and then heard the adorable story SIX SNOWY SHEEP and then finally took a long hard winters nap. As the big man in the red suit says, “Merry Christmas to all…and to all a good night.” P.S.
*A special thanks to Sharyn & Nick Belkofer for the outrageously delicious cookies, so fancily decorated—they were a HUGE hit. Thank you for making our party extra special.
KIDS FIRST wishes everyone in Chico and around the world a happy, cheerful, and warm holiday season. This is a time for being thankful for all the wonderful things in our lives that we share with our families, friends, and neighbors.
