Candy List for Cookie Cottages

As you know, December is a month for sharing traditions in our classroom. We've already shared one of mine, making orange pomanders, on Grand Friends Day. And, thanks to you, I am anticipating several more fun shared experiences that bring in cultural and family customs. More on these as they get scheduled.

A Sweet Scene from Last Year
On Thursday morning, December 22nd, we will be decorating houses made from graham crackers. It is my FAVORITE winter holiday tradition to share with people I love. I will provide each child with a house that I’ve made from graham crackers and frosting, and I will also provide lots and lots of frosting to use as “glue”. These houses will then be taken home at 11:30 (dismissal time on that day) to enjoy as a table centerpiece (if it makes it that long before being nibbled).

In the next several weeks, please consider contributing a bag or two of candies to use as decorations. I’ve listed just a few ideas of candies that have worked well in the past. Please remember that S-K is a nut-free school, even when decorating with candy!

Thank you so much!
