Christmas gift for Parents

Are you having trouble deciding what your kiddos can get your parents? Well, I have the perfect solution. I just listed by 2013 Calendar - A Christmas Gift for Parents.

I started doing this 4 years ago and parents love it! The calendar is black and white and has pictures for each month that students can color.

Here is how I assemble them for my parents. I first take a picture of the student. I have them hold this sign that came with a bulletin board kit that is no longer in stock.

After the students have colored each page, I place their picture, year, and some sort of decoration on a large 12 X 18 piece of construction paper and laminate it. Then I staple the calendar to the paper.

I always wrap it up with an ornament the kiddos made and there ya go! The parents really love this gift because it is "hand-made" and useful! I have made this one SUPER cute and each page has an adorable border! Just click here to grab it in my store!
Don't forget. You only have until Monday to sign up for Holly Bloggy Christmas!

  2. I used to do the same thing when I taught kindergarten, but I would have the students fill in the dates as a way to practice writing their numbers 1-30. We would do it through the month of December and by January assessments, most of my kiddos knew how to write their numbers!
