Christmas Crafts: Part 1

Christmas is only 16 days away…can you believe it? I am still puzzled as to how fast this year has gone by. I know that many retailers have had Christmas stuff out since October, but I  really like to get in the holiday mood closer to the 25th. In my mind, celebrating too early ruins the novelty of Christmas. I generally like to start talking about winter (think snowmen, penguins, and mittens) at the beginning of December with my students. Around week 2 or 3 we begin to talk about Christmas (we go on break the week before the 25th). Most kids are dying to talk about it sooner, but I try to divert them (haha).

This year’s first project: Christmas Trees

Materials: 1/4 of a paper plate, green paint, paintbrush, wooden craft stick, paper/stickers/jewels, stapler

Time: 10 minutes

1) Staple the wooden craft stick to the back of the paper plate.

2) Paint the paper plate green. Let dry for 5 minutes.

3) Apply stickers and/or jewels to decorate your tree.

This craft is super quick and makes an excellent prop for plays or assemblies. 🎄Enjoy!
