    Just did this one....

    Clip to ScrapBook
    With my 4th graders. It was very simple and easy! (I found the info here on this website.)

    We mixed long grain rice, a few drops of green food coloring, and Elmer's glue in a small bowl. The kids stirred it until it was mixed and then dumped it out on a piece of wax paper. I have a pattern of a circle taped to the table under the wax paper so they could see the correct size. After they dumped the mixture on the wax paper, they used their fingers to put it in a wreath shape around the circle pattern. They then washed their hands, and then put three small red beads on each side for berries. Once dry (overnight), I hotglued a paper clip hanger and one of those cheap, little red bows on the bottom of it. I will now take their picture, glue it to the back, and it'll be a Christmas picture frame ornament. So cute!

    The project probably took my kids about 5 minutes to make. I did it with my small, guided reading groups. It worked well. I love the ones that are quick and easy!:s)
