Christmas Ornaments and on the 5th Day of Christmas

Today was a super busy day!   We worked on parent presents and beaded ornaments.

These are wooden ornaments from Michael's.  I got them from a donation a few years ago and I pull them out and let the kids choose each year.  I used them all this year, so next year I'll come up with something new! :) 

When we wrap them, we simply put them in a white lunch bag with tissue paper from the Dollar Tree.  I die cut some trees with scrapbook paper and let the kids choose one to glue to the front.  We also put a label that said Merry Christmas Love, Student Name.

Beaded ornaments anyone? I LOVE them! I just discovered that the tri beads are cheaper at AC Moore if you do these.  I totally recommend it. Also, get the Retail Me Not app on your phone for a coupon!  We  My amazing assistant counted out and pre-bagged the beads for the ornaments.  I gave them a plate to put their beads in so they don't go all over the place and mix with their friends. (I learned this the hard way a few years ago!)  We save the plate and the Ziplock bags for other projects as well.


So you know how I posted that Jolly was taking a break from our class for a day?  The kids missed her dearly on Thursday and got their act together, so she came back today and brought with her a Naughty and Nice list.  She even laminated it so Ms. Moore and I could write on it with a dry erase marker.  Today was a MUCH better day! :) 

All of these activities I have been posting come from my Christmas Around the World Pack.  You won't be disappointed if you like crafts! 

On to the 13 days of Christmas!
