We had a lot of fun creating our entry to the Christmas Door Decorating contest! We made our own Polar Express! The children colored their own boxcar for the train. We love The Polar Express story written by Chris Van Allsburg.
We added white glue to the rooftops of the boxcar and sprinkled white glitter on top. Lots of fun! The children added a photograph of themselves in one of the boxcar windows.
We decided to paint the railroad tracks using black paint. One of our rainy day classroom supervisors helped us finish the job!
We love using glitter and made our Christmas light houses using white glue and red glitter. The children drew little vignettes of the inside of their houses in the windows. We also included another photograph of them in one of the windows!
We will be using these houses as a special cover for a book we created about Christmas and the five senses.
Take a peek!
Glitter is a lot of fun!
