Christmas is almost here! It is certainly called the crazy season for a reason! Have you been shopping lately? Oh my goodness it’s bedlam here in NSW, I bet it’s the same where you’re from!
It’s this craziness that reminds me I should be more organized each year, and still… here I am with half of everything done! Are you the same? There’s just so much to do!
To make things a little easier, I wanted to help you out with some Christmas card ideas that your students could make for their loved ones or friends.
This card is inspired by Christmas lights and uses bottle caps to create each light.
I have used ribbon for the cord, but if you like students could use string, wool or just draw the lines.
I blogged about it over at my collaborative blog; Elementary Chalkboard. You will find the steps to create this card here.
Created by Clever Classroom via Elementary Chalkboard.

Frogs, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails has used brush sticks or what some call stackadoo blocks to create a Christmas tree image.
I guess you could use plain wooden blocks, lego or duplo blocks.

You might also like to use our Christmas Coloring Pages to create your own cards. Students could cut out the images and glue them on a folded piece of cardstock.
The file also includes 20 ways to use the coloring pages and they would be ideal for the last few weeks leading up to Christmas break.
