For a week now the kids have been chanting the count day to the last day of school which means that the pressure was on to come up with a lovely Christmas Craft idea to give to their teachers. Thankfully I had only two to make this year because my teenagers are past the whole teacher gift giving thing.
Despite the constant ringing in my ears of the daily countdown I still found myself trying to create miracles the night before.
This year I opted for some cute little angels that were very quick and easy to make. The morning after I was met with a big warm hug and a little burst of excitement from Miss Nine as she jingled the little brass bells. Then for the final touch I had Miss Nine sign the back of the Angel and include the date so that her gift would be remembered for years to come.
As she wrapped her precious Angel I was reminded of how simple a gift could bring such delight. Surely this is the essence of Christmas. I hope you are enjoying creating your own Christmas crafts for others to enjoy.
