This article shares resources and activities that are great for in-person learning, as well as books and videos that can be shared with children both in the classroom and online.
As one of the biggest holidays of the year in the United States, Christmas is an exciting time for many young children who celebrate this day on December 25th.
Dish Brush Christmas Trees: With this simple craft, children can make and decorate their own Christmas trees with only a few items. All you will need is dish brushes (which can be found at the dollar store), paint, and construction paper. Children can make trees with dish brushes and then decorate their trees with fingerprints or other items you have on hand such as pom-poms or buttons!
