RE: poinsettias

For the pine boughs avoid buying them, most of the trees, and wreath
materials sold have a chemical preservative on them. I can ways tell,
because I go near them (even outside) and I have an instantly blinding
headache and my sinus swell shut. I have pine trees all around my
apartment and the portable I teach out of and I never have that type of
reaction even when picking up fallen branches.

i like the poinsettia drawing idea - would also work with real
poinsettias in a variety of colors as models for students to study,
draw/paint.  they're pretty cheap in my neck of the woods and NOT
poisonous, btw. 
check out this link with lesson ideas:
another one with lots of info:
ps other holiday plants would be fun to include in drawing/painting
projects, too - christmas cactus, amaryllis, holly, pine boughs/cones,
