    Door Decorating
    By Melissa

    I have a fun way to involve the kids and make a cute door decoration. Have all of your students trace their hands on green construction paper (different shades is great)and cut them out. They can actually cut through several layers at once with only tracing on the top sheet. I also had them string popcorn at a center and cut out and glitterize snowflakes. I put a blue background on the door (Wrapping paper works great and is just the right size)and arranged the hands into a pine tree, strung the popcorn zig-zag on it and placed the snowflakes on and around the tree. I also put white batting under the tree for snow. It looks so cute and 3-D! Captions can be anything related to Christmas or Winter. (Peace on Earth, etc). I cut the letters out of doilies to go along with the snowflake theme. (sorry about the captions, can't really remember what I used last year) Hope you like the idea.
