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:

“If I don’t open every door, to see what lies within, I’ll miss an opportunity that might not come again. I stay busy day and night, through winter, fall, and spring. I crush my fear of missing out by doing EVERYTHING.”
Seraphina wants to do it all, and she does. Between soccer, karate, ballet, and French club, she isn’t going to miss out on anything! Or is she?
