Here are directions for two simple, but special homemade gifts:
Most teachers like to read and often encourage their students to read, so what better gift than a handmade bookmark!
Cut a piece of colored paper into a strip, 8½ by 2 inches. With colored markers, write a special message or draw a picture. You can also add stickers or a photo. Take your bookmark to a print shop and have it laminated. Punch a hole, centered at the top, with the hole punch. Make a tassle by cutting three strands of colored yarn and feeding them through the hole. Then tie a knot.
A homemade card for your child's teacher makes a great personal gift. It also gives your child practice in the skills of cutting, drawing and writing.
Fold the piece of card stock or construction paper in half. Tear or cut three white circles from the white paper for the snowman's head and body. On the head, use the hole punch to make two tiny black eyes (or draw two eyes), cut out or draw a red mouth and use the orange paper to make a carrot-shaped nose. Glue the circles to form the snowman on the front of the card. Before the glue dries, tuck the pipe cleaner or twist ties under the middle circle to serve as the snowman's arms. Cut out a small, black hat and paste it on the snowman's head. Help your child write a holiday message inside.
