We have another fun Christmas craft video for you to do today at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBQihqSYEk8 using colored paper, glue and yarn.  You can make really cool paper baubles for your Christmas tree with just a few materials and a little bit of time.

 Let’s finish out today with a fun Christmas Science Fact:

Question:  Why does Rudolph have a red nose?

Answer:  Medical researchers in the US and the Netherlands were suspicious about the famous reindeer’s scarlet snout, so they travelled to Norway to investigate.  Using video-imaging technology, they took an extremely close look at how blood circulates in reindeers’ hairy snouts and found that they were, on average, 25% more densely packed with tiny blood vessels, or capillaries, than human noses.  This would definitely account for reindeers having a redder nose than you or I.  There was no finding, however, that reindeer’s noses ever glow.  I guess they’ll still have to ask Santa about that one!!

I have a really cute Christmas picture for you to draw today at https://www.deepspacesparkle.com/draw-christmas-car/ and https://d3ndagut9sanks.cloudfront.net/2018-D/VID-Dec/Christmas+Car.mp4?_=1.  If you do not have the materials that the artist uses feel free to be creative and use whatever you  have: crayons, markers, colored pencils, glitter, tissue paper, etc.  This would make a really awesome Christmas card or a lovely gift, especially if popped into a photo frame. 

And finally let’s finish out the week with Mrs Holley’s Chuckle Time:

Question:  What did Mr Grandstaff say to Rudolph when he didn't do his Social Studies homework?

Answer:  Yule go down in history!

Remember, if you keep your face always towards the sun the shadows will fall behind you!  Keep positive friends!
