Winter Gifts for Parents and Students

Hi Bloggy friends!  It has again been about a month since I visited my little place on web.  The month of December has been busy, busy!  We had conferences the second week of the month.  I was so happy with how every single one of them went.  I have the best students and parents this year!

I wanted to share with you the gifts that my students made for their families.  My students made these before Winter Break for a holiday gift, but they would be great gifts even in January.  I found this great idea on Pinterest and thought it would be a perfect gift.  

We started off the process by painting the students' handprints with white paint.  After the paint dried, the students used markers to add hats, scarves, carrot noses, and coal eyes, mouths, and buttons.  Finally, the students added the poem to their papers.





When the gifts were finished, the students were given a manila envelope to decorate.  The students did a wonderful job decorating their envelopes.  Here are a couple examples of the great pictures that my students drew.



Once their envelopes were completed, I placed their snowman pictures into their envelopes and the students took them home.  I hope their families loved them as much as I did!

Well, I couldn't have my students give a gift to their families without giving them a gift from me.  I gave each student two books and a Smencil.  Instead of wrapping them, I purchased decorative Ziploc bags and put the gifts inside.  Easy peasy!


Speaking of gifts, my son asked Santa for the Let's Play School Kit from Lakeshore.  My son was not disappointed on Christmas morning.  He loves it!  I have to say I am kind of jealous.  I would have loved to have had this as a gift when I was a child!


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are having a wonderful Winter Break!  See you soon!
