c is for crown

in honor of the new year, we read amanda dade’s new years parade and noticed all the amazing hats and crowns. we also noticed that it is a little girl who leads the parade and then gets to STOP the parade.  hmmmmmm.

afterwards, we used outdated calendars to make our own crowns.

again, more finger muscle work folding the strips. some were most successful doing a basic crumble or scrunch. the other end of the spectrum was accordian-style folding. most kids enjoyed rolling the strips and pressing down to make creases.

we were relishing the beautiful weather and actually brought our project outside to do! several kids called out a spontaneous, “happy new year!” when we put the crowns on.

happy new year indeed.
