The kids glued little squares on them & googly eyes. The teacher used a hole punch on the mouth and tail areas. The kids strung through a pink pipe cleaner to create a tongue (twist at the ends) and a black one with a bell attached to it to create the tail. by tanisha

Talk about a clever idea: willow switches just stuck in the ground will bend easily (after all we weave baskets from them) and sprout with little encouragement. Just twisting the twigs, holding them together with string or twist ties, until they are growing well, will give a charming, but less formal look. [by sarahgb(theoriginal), via Flickr] by proteamundi

his is a great activity for developing cognitive and fine motor skills. Children take the alphabet strips and put them together in order from A to Z. You can print these on regular paper and use glue sticks to put them together or you can print them on carstock ... laminate them and attach velcro to each end.

No pattern except for a brown circle (for the head) and a red circle (for that big ol' nose). The rest we just did it step by step together using a sheet of brown construction paper (cut a rectangle for the neck, cut strips for the arms and antlers, etc.) I love how they all turned out so different...and so darn cute. by mamie
