Just wondered what other third grade teachers were having their students make for parent Christmas gifts? I am looking for some new ideas.

Calendars

In the past I have done calendars. We do 12 art projects...generally starting in October, and turn it into a calendar to give to our parents. It can be an overwhelming project if you don't have that much time. Though it is what I have done the last few years, I am thinking of finding something that isn't as time consuming! However, the parents love them and the kids are so proud of their work!

Candy jars

In years' past, I've made snowman candy jars that I found in a craft magazine. I gather up baby food jars and lids (often parents or staff help me out here). We then glue a lg. styrofoam head to the lid, glue foam pieces to its head to make a face, use felt to glue on a scarf, and I use odd-matched donated baby socks, turned upside down and tied off w/ yarn to be the snowman's hat. They turn out adorable! A couple weeks before vacation, I ask parents to donate a bag of wrapped Christmas candy. The kids then pick what they know their parents like and fill the jars. Because they're baby food jars, it doesn't take much. Good luck!
