The Joys of the Holiday Season

Black Friday, long lines, packed stores, sold-out products....Family memories of the holiday season can get pushed aside by commercialism. Think back to when you were a child and celebrated Christmas holidays. What family memories stand out in your mind? Baking cookies, decorating Christmas trees, and wrapping handmade gifts might come to mind. 

Christmas is a wonderful time to share with students the meaning of giving. However, it's the homemade gifts that mean the most. At my home, our Christmas tree is decorated with ornaments that are either homemade by family members or given by friends. Each conjures a unique memory of its giver. That's what makes Christmas special!

Here are some products students can make and give for Christmas:
