This week we read A Star for Jesus, by Crystal Bowman. This is a wonderful retelling of the Christmas Story! It also explains the significance of the Star at Christmas time.
Last year I made a Star and Paper Chain Christmas Countdown. Emily really enjoyed taking of a link each night and I think it helped her picture how long until Christmas. So this year I was very excited that she would be able to help me make it again. We were able to do our stART project with 2 of our friends too.
First I cut out a star from yellow construction paper and this little poem to glue to the star:
Each evening when goodnights are said,
Take off one link and hop into bed.
When only the star is left to shine,
then you will know it’s Christmastime!
I was very excited that Sarah was able to laminate all of the stars for us so we will be able to use it again an again!
The girls all helped make the paper chains. We attached 25 chains to the star!
