Spreading Christmas Cheer

Our school adopted a local nursing home (the Lutheran Home), and our December project was to make them Christmas cards.  We went with the bright and festive papers and got busy with some thumbprint and fingerprint action.  Super simple. Super cute

We also discussed giving and the rewards of blessing others.  My students really got it and it made my heart smile when they said "can't we get them more things than just a card"? They wanted to do more. 
They turned out wonderful don't you agree?

 My Christmas tree card

 Tree number one in our room is pink. The kids love it as much as I do. It's right beside our bucket fillers so I think the tree feels pretty special:)
 lights off it shines so pinkly
 these are blue lights around the dry erase board right by the door.

our second small green Martha Stewart tree.  
They take decorating these trees rather serious.
