Celebrating St. Lucia Day
(Dec. 13th) with our preschoolers. One of our students Grandmother is visiting tomorrow to share her Swedish family tradition. She is bringing ginger cookies for all and will dress her granddaughter in the traditional white dress with red sash, green wreath crown of candles while she tells the story of St. Lucia. Today we prepared for her visit by making paper plate wreath crowns and star wands. The children enjoyed using the glitter paint and gluing the paper leaves on their clowns. I'm really happy with how they turned out. We invited everyone to dress in red and white tomorrow; with their paper crowns and star wands I anticipate some cute photos!
