My class made these last Sunday as a gift for their parents and I thought you might enjoy this idea too. It is super simple and here is all you need to do it:
- Clear Plastic Ball Ornaments
- Christmas Ribbon
- Masking Tape
- Permanent Marker
- Pipe Cleaner or Thin Ribbon
- Copy of the Christmas Tag– download here!
Ask a child to stand against the wall and place a strip of masking tape on the wall to show how tall they are now. I wrote the name of the child on the tape. It might be fun if I leave them on the wall so when it’s time to promote to the next class, we can compare and see how much they have grown. Next, allow the child to help you stretch out the Christmas ribbon to their height and cut it. Show them how to push the ribbon in the ornament opening (sometimes a pencil eraser end helps). Secure the top on the ornament. Ask the child to write their name and either their age or the year on the back of the tag. Tie the tag to the ornament with some thin ribbon or pipe cleaner.
Christmas Doodle Posters
Kids have loved coloring these Doodle Art Posters in classrooms and hallways. Mr. Mark creates a bulletin board with a fresh poster and a tub of markers so kids arriving early or waiting for parents at pick-up time can color the posters. Everyone loves seeing the progress and yes, we have caught Mr. Mark coloring too. It’s just fun! We have been surprised how kids have calm conversations with each other and with teachers while they work together.
