If you are looking for a simple and easy craft idea, these Christmas trees are perfect.  

I love the detail on this one!  See the little squirrel at the bottom?

We used the instructions below from Krokotak, and these green Astrobrights paper to make our trees.

Did you know that Macy's donates $1 to Make a Wish Foundation for every letter to Santa they receive? 

 Every year my students write persuasive letters to Santa explaining why they should be on Santa's good list!

We send them to Macy's so that our wishes can go to a good cause.  You can find out more about this amazing program here.

Students can always use more practice with their math facts!  My students love to play this Cookies for Santa game during the holidays to practice math fact fluency!  

I print the cards out on card stock and then put them in an empty cookie can.

We always take a class photo to make holiday Christmas Cards for families, our specials teachers, the principal, school secretary, etc.  Here is this year's picture - I still need to make our card.

Color by Number is a great activity for keeping students happily busy and engaged.  I love using them to help my students practice their math facts.  You can find my Christmas versions here.
