New Years Eve Bags

We did this last year and it was so much fun, Esther reminded me of it back at Thanksgiving that she wanted to have "the clock bags" again. We had paper bags with clock faces on them and each hour the kids opened up a bag of activities for the hour. I had a little rhyme about each one. Instead of counting to midnight this year, we are going to start at noon and countdown to church time (7:00). Then we can go to bed whenever we get tired! :)

New Years Eve, the Countdown has begun! Are you ready to count are your ready for fun? We will spend the day exploring space! With “Moon Rock Pizzas” We will feed our face! (**ingredients for personal pizzas)

10…9…8 Ready set go! Let’s blast off in rockets made with Play-doh!

(**Space themed playdoh set)

7…6…5… before its too late, lets pop some corn and enjoy the last movie of 2008!

(*The movie Space chimps and popcorn)

4..3…2…That movie was a trip! Let’s make some cookies that look like an alien space ship. (* Sugar cookies with green M&Ms on top to look like aliens)

…1..Blastoff!!!!Here we go!!! The countdown is over tick tock tick tock. Time to make an alien out of a sock! (*Materials to make alien sock puppets)

The fun keeps on going, lets not stop! Let’s read a space book and enjoy a blowpop. ( *A space story and a bag of blowpops)

Only 2 bags left, what going to be inside? A sticker book about space…from these aliens you can’t hide! (*Stickerbook)

Today we went to the moon and to space. We watched a great movie and stuffed our face! We played with Playdoh and with our socks. To remember your spacy New Years Eve enjoy some moon rocks! (*Poprock candy)
