Here's a little magic idea in case you need it today!

Use your finger like a magic wand as you wave it and say, "Abracadabra!." Explain that when you say a word, they must become the word. When you say, "Freeze!" they need to stand still until you wave your wand and say another word. For example, "Abracadabra! You're reindeer!"
*You can use candles, snowmen, bells, candy canes, and other seasonal words.

Candy Cane Wand
Here’s the easiest art project ever! Cut paper into 8” squares. Have children color red on each outside edge. Start at one point and roll up. Tape the end in place. Taaa daaa!
*Let children say/write what they would do with a magic wand.

Hint!  I find it easier to roll it around a pencil and then remove the pencil after I tape the end in place.

This would also be a great pointer for reading the room or big books!

If you need a laugh today, take a look at this video Debbie Clement did with jibjab.  There's something wrong with your head if you don't smile when you watch us sing and dance!
