I sent the students home with their family Christmas gifts yesterday.
This is one example of the cards my students made. We used the Christmas tree from our die-cut machine if the students chose a red card. There was a white snowflake available if they chose a green card. The card is attached to a brown paper lunch sack – high tech, I know 🙂
When the family opens the card, here is what they find inside:
And finally, when they open the sack and dig through the extra stuffing, the families will find a new ornament inside. These were SUPER easy to make and are definitely cute (in my opinion). They are clear glass ornaments that I found at Michaels (a craft store). They are not round like a sphere, but have more of a flat surface. The tops came off and a parent helped stuff them with cotton batting (cotton balls would probably work, too). Then the kids used black and orange sharpie markers to make a snowman face.
What did your students make for Christmas presents this year?
Finally getting back into work mode after being in Nashville for the Teachers Pay Teachers conference. I just finished up a new pack for Mermaids Don't Run Track, which is part of the Bailey School Kids series.
