Diane - I just came up with a plan for candle shield ornaments. They are
made out of tin foil, folded and then pierced with a push pin. When hung
in front of a light, or placed in front of a candle, the light shines
through. Like yourself I'm having a hard time with the holiday craft
stuff - my first year too - and this seemed a way to extend my intro to
elements and principles - points/dots form lines. I had my spec. ed kids
work with a template - tomorrow my students will draw their own -
angels, trees, etc. You could also connect it to the tin candle holders
of the past. As a gift you could have them make the envelopes to put
them in and decorate those as well. It went well today - especially
after I turned out the lights and showed them how they turn out. The
funniest one was the angel with the Air Force One T-shirt.
Which brings me to a question - what do you do when students complain "I
can't draw!"
