Christmas Craft Idea

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.

Her teacher will love it, especially since you put her name and the date on it. I know because I taught for 33 years and each year when I get out my decorations I think about those kids with fondness!.

I love this sweet angel. I would have loved getting this as a gift while I was working as a teacher and school counselor. I still have the little painted bear a student gave me in 1984. Thank heavens Jim's mother dated it! Is there any chance you will share the directions for Miss Nine's angel? Happy New Year.
