I saw this idea several years ago and have used it for about 4 years now and have loved it. Wanted to share it with you. These are our Classroom Fuzzy's. We earn them in the classroom for doing good work, good behavior, and in other positive ways in our room. Each time we earn a fuzzy, I place him in a jar. After we have earned 10 fuzzy critters, the class is rewarded. I have found over the years, that kids love the simple stuff for rewards. One they love the most is walking outside when I pick them up from lunch. We take a little stroll outside and then go to the classroom. The fuzzy is easy to make:
Cut yarn into about 5inch pieces. Each fuzzy is made up of about 20 pieces. Lay them out straight in a pile. Take one 5 inch piece of yarn and wrap around the 20 pieces of yarn and tie a knot. Glue 2 wiggly eyes to the yarn.
YOU HAVE MADE A WARM FUZZY. Make as many as you need for your jar. Your class will just love them!!!!
