Jack Be Nimble!


Day 2 of the week! The theme this week is Nursery Rhymes!
Project - Jack Be Nimble Candlesticks - We recited Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candlestick a few times. Then we made candlesticks out of paper plates, cardboard tubes and coffee filters. Directions: Paint a cardboard tube white, let dry. Hot glue the cardboard tube to a paper plate. Paint a coffee filter with orange, red and yellow watercolor paint, let dry. Crumple painted coffee filter and stuff into the top of painted cardboard tube. Then recite the rhyme and have the kids jump over the candlestick. I wrote the rhyme on the paper plate inserting each child's name where Jack's name is said. Materials Needed: paper plate, cardboard tube, coffee filter, white paint, paint brush, watercolor paints

The candlesticks!
