Christmas "Toed" Stockings

The students in my class create Christmas stockings with a "toed" twist.

The children trace a stocking pattern onto two pieces of 12" x 18" red or green construction paper.

They cut out a snow-melting pattern for the tops of the stockings.

The stockings are glued together {on the edges only} for a two-sided stocking that can be stuffed and filled with a {SURPRISE} treat or two.

I give scraps of colored construction paper to the children and then the real FUN begins.

Snowflakes are a must on this stocking.


Love the snowman's big carrot nose.


Don't forget the snowman's hat.


The lights shine brightly on the top of this Christmas tree.


I'm amazed at the tiny details on this stocking.


And now the stockings adorn our classroom walls.

I don't have a space large enough for a stocking bulletin board, so the stockings are scattered here and there on the classroom walls. It's quite festive that way. And it's as close as it gets to snowing in our part of the world.

The insides of the stockings are stuffed with tissue paper. I put surprise gifts in them for the students before they take them home for winter break. {By way, they just giggle and LOVE that the toes are showing thru the stockings}.

I would love to hear about some of the activities you have planned for your last week before winter break.
