Simple Inexpensive Holiday Gift for Students

Today is the LAST day of school before Christmas break!!!! To say that I am thrilled would be an understatement. Today is an easy day because we are having "Reindeer Games" and holiday movies all day. Part of me wishes we just could go home, while the other part of me enjoys playing goofy games with my kids. I am nervous about the weather, however, because I am planning on driving home right after school. I don't know if I'll be able to based on the forecast! Anyway, I struggled trying to come up with a small gift I could give my students without spending a lot of money. As I was browsing Walmart last weekend, I came across 12-packs of Christmas pencils for $.97 and knew that was it! I bought a set of Avery Multipurpose Removable Labels to wrap around the top of the pencil and that was it! I bought 11 packs of pencils and one pack of labels, making this project around $15.


So what do you think? I hope my students love them! They're always asking me for pencils and then they forget to give them back! Now they have no excuse ;) at least...not for awhile anyway.

How are you finishing out your week? Can you believe how close we are to Christmas?! I can't WAIT!
