How to Catch Santa FREEBIE!

I love Jean Reagan's whole "how to" book series. They are THE cutest ever! When I came across her, How to Catch Santa, on Amazon...I knew I had to get it! It is just as precious in real life! 

Last week we read the book and then came up with a plan on how we would catch Santa if we could. I got so tickled at some of these!! 

Afterwards, my students wrote out their steps of how they would catch him on this little craftivity. 

After they wrote their steps, I threw in some STEM fun and let my students create their "trap" to catch Santa. I let them use chenille sticks, popsicle sticks, streamer, yarn, cotton balls, cupcake liners, bells...and just about anything else I could find in my art cabinet. 

I took pictures of their "traps" and attached it to their how to writing. I love this one. It is a net with cookies and milk! So clever and creative!! 

If you are in need of a fun, engaging activity to keep your kiddos engaged this week, you can download this craftivity for free, here.
