Yesterday I went in to my daughter's kindergarten classroom to share some Irish Christmas traditions. I focused on holly since that is a common decoration used in Ireland during the holidays. You can read about what I did last year here. This year I decided to have the children make tiny hanging arrangement with fresh cut holly and greens. I used recycled baby food jars and tied some green floral wire around them as a handle. I loved how the children came up with the great idea to float the holly berries in the water- it looked beautiful! After they made their arrangements they choose ribbon to tie around the jar and also used some tiny cards (that were punched with a holly cutout) to write Merry Christmas in Gaelic. For the snack I made some holly wreaths with m&m berries. We listened to some Irish Christmas music and it was a really fun way to spend the morning.
