12 Dogs of Christmas with Kinders-decorate a dog!

Kinders loved the book "The 12 Dogs of Christmas". I basically sang it to them. It follows the song except changes the words so they correspond with different breeds of dogs doing funny things. For example, "On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 10 dalmations dancing..." and has these hilarious photos of dogs doing funny things and then the artist 'drew' clothes on top of the photo. We decided to do the same! Except I printed off regular photos of dogs, then suggested funny things to add with crayon and oil pastel. A scarf? A sled? A santa beard? Ice skates? Mitten on the paws? Tutus? Ballet shoes? Hat? Candy cane? The students laughed and laughed with the story and the project. A great project to end before the big winter break!
