Six popsicle sticks might not seem like much but when you add imagination … anything’s possible.

Just as the 36 preschoolers at Busy Bees Preschool Inc. in the El Dorado Hills Business park. Teacher Ms. Stacey Sathis sent each student home with six sticks and the Christmas ornaments that came back astounded her and the rest of the Busy Bees staff.

“We’ve got snowmen and gingerbread houses and picture frames,” said administrator Suzanne Jones. “It was just really nice to see the creativity.”

The ornaments hang on the classroom tree, painted on a cheery yellow wall. Parents came to Busy Bees Wednesday morning to admire the tree, listen to the children sing “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer,” among other carols, and help their little ones decorate ice cream cones.

Busy Bees strives to keep parents involved, Jones explained, and teachers like Sathis and Louise Basker love to send projects home.

“We’re going to make snowflakes in January,” Basker said.

Parents take notice; pull out the safety scissors, glitter and glue, and go wild with your children.
