BRINGING CHRISTMAS CHEER TO THE CLASSROOM

On top of all the other things I have going on right now, you know, painting, decorating, blogging (or lack thereof), I also volunteered in my oldest son’s classroom to make ornaments for their Christmas tree!

I purchased the wooden ornaments from Joann’s for 39 cents each

After they finished coloring them with the markers, I surprised them with GLITTER!!! Anyone with kids know how much glitter excites a child! Oh I had so much fun with this project.  The best part was when I was helping then add the glitter and coming up with the designs for the glitter, one of the little girls said “Wow, she’s an artist”! OH MY GOSH!!!! Too adorable!

Here is Antonio’s ornament (that will be on our tree next year)

Because they had to dry, I didn’t get to take pictures of them on the tree.  Tomorrow is there Holiday Party, so I’ll try to snap a picture before I leave;-)

What crafts have you done with your kids or ANY kids for the holidays?!

Those are too cute. This is that time when I wish I had small children. They make the holidays so cheerful.

What wonderful keepsakes for everyone! I have so many classroom ornaments on my tree, but my favorite is a nativity set made out of clothespins. So precious!

I remember going to a party last week and there was glitter everywhere. I was upset.

But children and glitter is a win win in my book.

So cute! I'll bet that meant the world to your son. Aren't kids the best? I love volunteering at school and come home every time with a new perspective.
