Need a Christmas gift project--ideas?

I'm starting my second week in my new class. We have 3 weeks to complete a Christmas craft gift for parents, and nothing has been planned. This can be an overtly religious project, since I'm in a church school. My students are all guys, FYI. Ideas?

I used to make the snowman handprint ornaments. It has evolved to a handprint on a small canvas.

I used the small canvas and the back side is a really pretty bluish gray. I have done it on small wood pieces from Michael's too. They are easier to work with than the ornaments and we have many who do not celebrate Christmas.

Depending on your budget....

Small lace doilies (Amazon or possibly Oriental Trading). Dip them in liquid starch or watered down glue. Sprinkle with glitter. Let dry on wax paper. Tie a ribbon on. They look like snowflakes.

Depending on the age of the students, there are lots of Internet directions for origami nativities.

I'm not sure how old your students are, but Borax pipecleaner snowflakes can be adapted for any age group, made into ornaments easily, and it's easy on the budget.

I've let students make snowflakes, write their names, or just make any shape they wanted.

You could have them make Nativity shapes or candy canes? You could tell them the meaning behind candy canes (J stands for Jesus...that thing) And they coudl also a take-home ornament for themselves or for family members.

We are making recycled paper this week and using it for simple ornaments and cards next week.

One year as a part of studying pioneers we did hand dipped candles which the kids thought were pretty awesome. I keep the leftover wax from my burners all year round.
