Christmas Silhouette Gifts

I have to admit, I'm in denial that I have to go back to school tomorrow. I have truly enjoyed Christmas break with my family. However, I know that I will be going back refreshed and ready for the second half of the year. It helps that I really enjoy my class this year, too.

Now that Christmas is over, I wanted to share a few pictures of what I made for the students to give to their parents as a Christmas gift this year. I take a picture of each child sitting sideways, lay the photo on top of a piece of black construction paper and carefully cut out each image. Then, I attach the silhouette to a paper doily. Each child decorates an envelope or folder as the gift wrap for the present. I sent them home right before break.
