The children were excited to make gifts for their parents this Christmas season (though they had to deliver them a bit late due to our December snow days)!
Our youngest class, the Seedlings, made their parents beautiful, green painted frames with red painted puzzle pieces.
A photo of each child was taken against our brick wall outside and then printed in black and white. We took plain, wooden frames and had the children paint them green. We used old puzzles with missing pieces, etc., around the outside of the frames. They were first painted white to cover the original image a bit. The children then painted over them with red paint.
We wrapped them in white paper the children decorated with dot painters and a bow. We think they turned out beautifully (which is easy with such cute kids)! We hope the moms and dads enjoyed opening them as much we enjoyed putting them together with the class!
