This week I took our large collection of Christmas books out and we have been enjoying reading them together. Both Emily and Juliette liked lifting the flaps in Peek-a-Boo Christmas!, by Marie Torres Cimarusti. This is the same author as Peek-a-Moo! one of our favorite story time lift the flap books. In this fun Christmas book you have to guess which Christmas character is hiding behind each flap. At the end Emily asked where the angle was. I said there was not one in this book but we could make our own Peek-a-boo Angel. So that is what we did for our project.
Emily said she wanted a pink Angel so I cut one large triangle and 2 smaller ones out of pink construction paper for the body and 2 arms. Then I cut a large circle and 2 smaller ones out of white for the head and hands and finally a yellow oval for the halo.
Emily glued the Angel together leaving the ends of the arms un-glued.
She added a face with a marker. When she was all finished she decided that her Angel needed legs too.
She folded the arms up over the face…
… to play Peek-a-Boo with her Angel.
