If you’re like me, I wait until the last possible moment to work on parent gifts with my students. The last possible moment. 2:00 on the last day of school before our break and cross my fingers and hope that the paint and glue dries quickly kind of last minute. Not this year. 🙂
I am ahead of the game. For once. And I was able to wrap and send home these parent gifts on the same day as we created them.
I purchased some wood picture frames online and we used our favorite Kwik Stix to decorate them for our families! They were dry in under 2 minutes and my students LOVED creating their own designs for their families. Can you tell we were studying patterns at the same time? 🙂 My students each drew a picture to place inside the frames that can be taken out and replaced as each family desires.
These frames were SUPER quick and easy and I know each family will appreciate the thought that their child put into creating their frame. Each frame fits each child’s personality so well. 🙂
If you’ve waited until the last minute, grab some Kwik Stix and let your students decorate–you can send your gifts home in vivid color the SAME day! 🙂
