I wish I didn't have to blur the kiddo's faces so you could see what cuties they are. Here is one up close without a pic.
One of the reasons I loved this craft was because I didn't have to get the paint out! Now I love a good painting project but my classroom doesn't have a sink so it's a pain in the neck. Instead, the kids used markers to color in one side of each stick. Worked great! Kids picked out buttons and I glue gunned them on. From start to finish- ENTIRE time for 21 kids...about 45 minutes! I printed pics out on printer (4x6) glued on back. Kids trimmed themselves. Then the kids wrote names and 2012 on back. Easy peasy!
And I don't wrap for my kiddos. Why would I when they can make these cute giftbags?
Green and White yarn, colored reinforcements, markers, lunch bags
I think I've finally found the gift I'll be making each year!
