Elf Ornaments (Holiday Gifts)

I am finally linking up with Stephanie @ 3rd Grade Thoughts with our Holiday Gifts for parents and students.

Here they are...
Michael's had these frame ornaments perfect for our pictures.  You may remember our Elf asked the kids to wear red.  The next day, the kids got sprinkled with magic snow, touched the elf and got a picture with him. 
I gave the kids choices of paints. 5 choices. These is what they looked like after two coats. Some of the kids decided to do just one coat of paint...as you can see :)
Add some puffy paint. Add a picture with your classroom elf.  Put back the ribbon the ornament came with... and tada!   I so wish I could show you their B-I-G smiley faces.  They were soooooo excited.
A few more :)
I brought some tissue paper, wrapped them nicely and placed them in some gift bags.  
The cards on the right: We took a class picture with the elf and a Happy Holidays sign. We made a card, each student signed it, decorated an envelope and put it in the gift bag as well.
What did the kids get?  Not much :(  A super cute scento ELF marker (of course)... and the adorable journals I made for them.  

That was enough good, right?

  1. I think that your parent gift was perfect. My mom still has all of the ornaments that I made with my picture in them. Thanks for the reminder that I need to send pictures home with my kiddos as least once this year. :)
