Christmas is a time to make gifts for family members. There are hundreds of wonderful gift ideas that kids can make, but not all of them are classroom-friendly. Many projects are designed for doing at home, but these activities and gifts will all work in a classroom as well. Many are simple, require few supplies, and can be done in a group setting with supplies commonly found in the classroom. Make these kid-made Christmas gifts with your class this year, and your kids will have tons of fun making gifts for family and friends!
