Another easy enrichment craft for the winter months- The above photo shows a wreath to use with the daycare - Green circle is precut and kids add eight holly berries, candle and flame. More involved wreath detailed in photos below.
We used the book - Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson - to explain cycle of life and death that takes place every year and how wreath symbolizes the great circle of life. And to talk about family traditions from all over the world at this time of year:
The Christmas Magic by Lauren Thompson, illustrated by Jon J. Muth (beautiful watercolors) - is also a great book to discuss all of the customs that evolved at this time of year - and it is nice to believe - in a little magic.
