We make snowman venn diagrams...each student uses a photo for the head and makes the other two circles from white paper...and then they and a friend compare and contrast in the bottom circle.

I love having my students turn their own photos into reindeers/elves. (Normally I just do reindeers with antlers and glittery red noses, but because I teacher Prep - aka Kinder - and Grade 1 students together I had to do something a little different and my firsties became elves today!) They also then have to apply for their job (ie: as a reindeer or an elf) and say WHY they would make a great reindeer/elf. SO cute!

When I taught 5K (until I moved to 2nd) my favorite craft was a wooden ornament they painted and we put their school picture on. A long lasting memento!

I teach in a Muslim country so we don't really "do" Christmas - but this year I'm going to have students make Susan Moran's (TGIF) stocking stuffers community-building craft (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Stocking-Stuffers-A-Community-Building-Freebie). It works perfectly with our Bucket Filling theme!

Our school does a canned food drive. We decorate a paper tree that hangs in the main hallway. We then get to add paper " presents" for each food item we bring in! They love the simple ornaments we make and seeing all the presents everyone collects! I love watching them get excited about giving!

This year we are making elves to go along with our Elf on the Shelf (it's a loooong three weeks till break). For our parents we are making snowman ornaments - clear glass ornaments filled with fake snow and glitter, and a face drawn on with paint markers. They should be super cute!

I love making stocking with the kids. We glue cotton balls on the front top and make a book about what they would like in their stocking. The last page is something they would NOT like in their stocking. Too cute!

I love to watch my kids make Italian paper quilling bells. I precut the paper strips, show the class an example and then let them use their imagination to roll and shape the quills onto the bells that they cut out. They are all so unique and beautiful.
