It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

 Oh, wait…is that now or the start of summer vacation?

Either way, this time of year is all kinds of busy, crazy, fun and exciting awesome when you work with kids. 

On a side note, it is also insanely exhausting and can be a very stressful time of year too. There are many changes in your schedule, the kids have sugar plums dancing in their heads, and there are a lot of added activities and projects to do.

Every December I would struggle to come up with an idea for holiday gifts that my students could make for their families. Some of the obstacles I faced included time, cost, and level of difficulty. Many of my students came from non-traditional homes and would, therefore, need to produce more than one gift. Also, not all of my students celebrate the same holiday so I needed to come up with something that was versatile.

I did my fair share of snow, snowman, gingerbread, and other winter-themed projects. Knowing that my mother had saved each and every gift I brought home added additional pressure. However, as a parent myself, I knew that people don’t necessarily want to see some oversized, glittery object presented to them to be displayed and cherished for all eternity. I really wanted to come up with an idea that was practical, personal, and useful.

To quote the Grinch, I puzzled and puzzled till my puzzler was sore and then I thought of something I hadn’t before...something perhaps that meant a little bit more.

It truly is the "gift that keeps on giving."

It's cheap. It's relatively quick. It's super easy.

And best of all it encourages home-school communication and family conversations well after the season has passed. I'm still hearing from last year's families about how much they loved these.

When I first came up with the idea I tested it out on my own little family.

It became such an awesome, amazing, wonderful addition to our mealtimes. I truly love how it has changed the dynamic at our table and how it has connected our family.



I am so excited about this creation and hope you, your students, and their families will love it too. While it was designed as a holiday present, it has also been used by many teachers at other times of year for Mothers Day and Fathers Day. These also make wonderful and affordable gifts for your parent volunteers at the end of the school year.
