Six Parent Christmas Gifts Tips
Popsicle Reindeer- Here’s another craft that students can make without much direction from you. I let the students use craft glue to make sure the sticks, eyes, and pom pom really stick on. You may have to show them that they need to leave room for antlers, because some students will make a perfect triangle.
Snowflake- This craft is great practice to work on those fine motor skills! I use three white pipe cleaners, cut them in half, then twist them into a snowflake shape. I then put out a bowl of beads and let students make their own designs. I remind them to leave a little bit of room on the ends, so the beads don’t fall off. I always like how these turn out!
1. Have each student dip their hand in white paint and put their hand on the ornament. Make sure they spread their fingers out a bit.
2. Let them dry.
3. Students can use the paint markers to decorate the snowman.
Paper Ornament- Our school had these ornament shaped die-cuts. Students glue a colorful square on the back of the ornament, put their picture on the front, then decorate with glitter. We turned this into a bulletin board and used their handprints to make the tree.
