Merry Making: Gifts for Classmates
Grace's teacher has requested that each child bring fifteen small gifts to class tomorrow to share with each of their classmates. Her suggestions included a piece of fruit or a bag of nuts.
We went out on a limb and opted to gift something a bit different than the suggestions. Each child will receive a handmade blank book and a holiday scented Smencil. Grace and I made the books together one weekday afternoon (the book covers were made from cardboard cereal boxes and the blank pages were drawing paper cut to size)- her favorite part of the process was binding the cover and pages together.
Grace has always enjoyed blank books, so we hope each of the children will like them as well. Hooray for merry making!
