Make a Present

How many times have you lost the twisty thing to close the bag of panetone (a traditional cake from the Milan area,during the Christmas season)? Or maybe you need a cute way to attach the gift tag onto a present.  Need place card holders for your dinner table?  The kids at ARTiculation360’s last workshop of the year, got to make the solution to all these possible dilemmas:

Aren’t these clips adorable?

First we read:

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell is a very funny story about an old lady who swallows just about every Christmas thing you can imagine.  Why did she swallow the bell? I wish she’d tell…and she does, but you’ll have to read the book to find out the answer!  The kids got some great ideas about how to decorate their clips:

Then, they cut…

…they glued…

…and they even make a gift bag to put their presents in!

Happy holidays!  We hope everyone had as much fun as we did!
