Have students paint brown
cookie shapes with white paint which sand has been added to for texture.
Then sprinkle glitter or real cookie decorations onto the
"frosting". Then have the children choose 3 of their favorites
and glue them to a paper plate. Use cut-out letters that say "Happy
Holidays from My Bright Batch of Smart Cookies". I also had a
colorful gingerbread boy on this board.

In the middle of the board I
make a Christmas tree using tracings of the children's hands cut out of
green construction paper. Just staple them on fingers facing down and in
rows. Then I cut out Christmas pictures from old cards and mounted them on
either green or red construction paper. (I cut the paper down to match the
sizes of each card. They are going to be presents so the shape should be
either square or rectangular.) I made one for each day of December. Next I
found religious wrapping paper and cut out pieces to match the sizes of
each card. I had these laminated for durability. I added a bow to each
piece of wrapping paper. Put the Christmas card pictures on the board
around the tree. Then put the corresponding wrapping paper on top. (I
wrote numbers on the back so that I could easily match them up.) I titled
it, Countdown to Jesus's Birthday. Each day we sing the song and then a
child gets to "open" the present for that day. Then they
describe what the "present" is. It is great
for number recognition and language!

Using an Overhead, Blow up a picture of a reindeer - Minus the Antlers.
You can use brown construction paper to create antlers or If you are
really Creative, use 2 small tree Limbs. Place reindeer in the center of
your Bulletin Board. Give each child a Piece of paper folded in half like
a card. On the inside of the card write: Dear Santa, For Christmas I would
like ... Let the children fill out the rest of their card. Then let them
decorate the front. Place each card around your bulletin board. You might
even want to take yarn and hang a few from the reindeers antlers.
