I know this is from 2019 but it was so cute that I saved it because I knew that I would want to find it again.
My group was asked to supply some ideas that several ages of children could use to make an item to take home to their families.


I presented this idea and it has already been used by several classes in our elementary school. I feel sure it will be used even more as the holiday approaches.

Several teachers commented on how great the instructions were that students needed very little help (except the younger ones).
Thanks for simple, inexpensive, but neat ideas that can be completed and enjoyed by almost any age.
