Ok, this post is not really school related, but it does appeal to my crafty side.
One of my friends (and colleagues) decided to host a Pinterest Party. Everyone brought an appetizer or dessert to share from a pin they found on Pinterest. The hostess had a craft prepared for all of us to complete. She had wooden blocks, Christmas-themed scrapbook paper, a Cricut machine, ribbon, and different kinds of glues/adhesives. I didn’t take pictures of the process, but thought I would share the finished project:
I had to do a close-up of the letters so you could see the patterns of the scrapbook paper. The J and Y letters were made with a glittery, pearl-colored paper, but the sparkle in the letters doesn’t show up as well in the photographs.
Even if you aren’t crafty, this project is pretty easy to make. I used Mod Podge to put the paper and letters onto the blocks. We used a staple gun to put the ribbon on the back. If you have the supplies and a volunteer to help, your students could make these as Christmas gifts for their families.
It’s not Monday, but I did make this, so I’m linking up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics.
Kel’s Kindergarten is also hosting a linky party devoted to holiday crafts.
Don’t forget that you can still participate in my Thankful Linky:
I finished up a new book companion for Vikings, which is the nonfiction companion to Viking Ships at Sunrise (book 15 in the Magic Tree House series). I also created a bundle of the two resources. Click on either of the links below to learn more.
