In With the New (Year)

This week, we had special pancakes, (last year we had '10 toast!)
and read a New Year's book.
We practiced counting backwards, reviewed the concept of "midnight" and did a lot of New Year's projects:

filled in and decorated a blank calendarmade a banner (coloring, tracing, cutting, spelling and lacing all in one project!)edible party hat,a Lego creationand a countdown ball (pop bottle filled with aluminum foil and decorated with number stickers)
I would love to see what everyone else has done for New Year's!
