Yesterday, the kids in my Third grade class were making "winter creatures" with cut paper. They were allowed to do snowmen, penguins, elves, santa, reindeer, or other woodland creatures that were nice, Each creature had to have one celebration element. (could be any holiday or tradition you celebrate in winter.
There is one little Jewish boy in the class and he felt a little left out with everyone making Christmas themed critters. So I had the brilliant idea to make a Moose with candles for antlers to look like a menorah.
The cheeky boy says to me, "FINALLY someone makes something for Chanukah!"
I really liked the idea so much, I wanted to take it a bit further and test out my new Adobe Photoshop CS6.
It forces me to be very painty....I like it.
May your winter be filled with warmth and light
