    Last year my class read Christmas legends and made ornaments that went with those. We used them to decorate our class tree after we made them and then they took them for their trees. We read about why reindeer were chosen to lead Santa's sleigh and then made reindeer out of popsicle sticks (body), brown pipe cleaner (antlers), googly eyes, and a red pom-pom for the nose. We also read a story about how tinsel came to be. It is said that a spider spun a web in a tree and it looked so beautiful. We then made spiders out of a large pom pom body, pipe cleaner legs, and googly eyes. There are lots of fun stories out there. These are just a few ideas! Enjoy!
