Happy New Year!

The kids came back to school today, and to celebrate the New Year, we had a countdown to noon!

We watched the ball drop and timed it to coincide with 12 in the afternoon.  I talked to the kids about the tradition adults have of kissing someone as the New Year begins, but because kids don't do that(!) I gave each of them a COOKIE to kiss as soon as the countdown was over.  They thought it was hilarious!  You can watch the video here: New Year's Cookie Kiss!

Then we looked at pictures of the celebration around the world.  In every country, we noticed the same thing: fireworks!! We read a book about New Year's Resolutions, and when the kids finished writing their own resolutions, they got to paint a fireworks scene.  

It was a fun day back! I've missed these little ones!
