This was a day for me to bless our friends who participate with Wonderful Wednesday and those friends who we started the CC journey with 4 years ago! I planned to take the crafts we have been doing for Advent and share those with them as well as a meal and some fun games! So the crafts we did were the El Greco Snowman, Mirror Image Trees and Recycled Magazine Wreaths! They all did great! Each one came out beautiful!
The game we played was the snowman game - two teams raced to see who can dress their snowman first. So cute and fun! The best part though is always at the end when they get to have a snowball fight with the toilet paper (or today we used crepe paper which actually was stronger and worked better)!

To end our time together, I had wrapped a variety of small gifts (one for each child) and put them in a bag, having them draw a number and pick according to that order out of the bag. Then to be silly I had them follow directions like; give your gift to the person on the right, then the person across from you and then had them raise their hand if they wanted to keep what they had in their hand (still unopened). If they did, they stepped out of the circle. The others continued with the directions switching around the gifts. Finally, everyone opened their gifts and then they were able to trade with one another. It was a fun way to end the time together.
