Parent Christmas gifts

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I totally forgot about parent Christmas gifts for my students to make, which is huge at my Catholic school. I started the month with so many ideas, and yikes, we have a 4 day week next week and that's it! I don't have any supplies, no idea in mind, etc.

I only have 16 5th graders. It can be religious or non-religious (though religious is nice for a Catholuc School). There are 4 days next week. I don't have any craft supplies, but with only 16 kids, I can afford to buy supplies, within reason of course. My kids are 5th graders and very good with following directions, working quietly, etc. I've never done parent Christmas gifts before, and I'm not the most artsy (though my kids are!), so anything with step-by-step directions would be helpful. Thanks!

Tiles

I've gotten little tiles from one depot and had them decorate them and then I sprayed them with clear spray paint. They use sharpies to decorate. You could get the larger ones to use as a trivet on their holiday table. I glue felt on the back so it won't scratch furniture.

That's all I got! My first graders are making snowman sock decorations. They can keep them or give them as a gift- it's up to them!

One year we made cute snowmen ornaments from glue, beads, and scraps. You can search it on pinterest and find the directions. Very easy and cute!

I got glass tree ornaments. The kids put their finger prints on it in brown and made a reindeer with glass markers or in white to make a snowman.

you could do clear cup upside down onto cardboard circle...make a snowglobe this way with student picture inside. Use Pinterest and search for snowglobe.

Another idea I've done in the past. Framed Wordles with family members names and attributes. They could print 4 different ones so families could switch out. I didn't really like the dollar store frames, but...

Now, this was 2nd/3rd grade, so they were younger, but the kids loved making them!

I love the ideas on this thread! I'm going to have to remember these for next year.

One of my co-teachers made these to give as parent gifts. I did these last year to give to parents on Valentine's Day. It was super sweet.

Have students adapt the I Am template poem to "Christmas is" or "Jesus is" Write a nice copy (or type and print) and glue onto pretty scrapbook paper. Framable art!

I've also had students do "Mom is" or "Dad is" or do the "I Come From" template poem.

Easy(ish, depending on writing skills), academic, cheap!

Sorry this took me so long to get back to you! Thanks everyone! I did one with a Christmas word and thumbprint lights. The kids had a blast!
