Mixing up Some Wreath Gifts

We've been really busy learning about holiday customs around the world. Even though this month is always very hectic, I really enjoy this unit. The kids learn a lot and we are able to squeeze in a lot of fun and engaging writing activities. Plus the bulletin boards look so dang cute!
We are also practicing daily for our Christmas Play. All 100 of us. It's a huge production with every student having a part... lots of singing and dancing... it's a crazy time, people.

Next week we are making our parent gifts. We have the kids make an ornament that looks like a wreath. It's super easy and always comes out very cute.
I use gloves for this part because I am a klutz and tend to get food coloring on my hands EVERY time.
After they dry they even look better! They look like they are really made from some sort of evergreen material. The wreaths are super easy to make, but look like they took a ton of time. Once they've dried, we'll wrap them up in a paper bag made to look like Rudolf along with our poinsettia letter gift.

I'm in running around like chicken missin' it's head mode. December 21st (1st day of winter break for us) is going to be such a welcomed day - I'm exhausted!

2 weeks to go!

Have a fabulous week teacher peeps!

    1. It's one "biscuit" per wreath. Be sure you get the orignal large size. The cereal comes 18 "biscuits" per box.
