The problem with having four weeks rather than three between Thanksgiving and the winter vacation is that you can spend the first couple of weeks thinking, oh well we've got an extra week this year, so we don't have to start that right now.
This is how you end up with six school days (one with a field trip, one with the Winter Program, and one that's a student teaching day) and too much to do.
So for formal crafts (as opposed to our regular pick-your-poison choice-based crafternoons), we'll just be doing these wreaths and the standard jar/decoupage of colorfast tissue paper project. For the latter, we'll be using this awesome magical stuff for the actual decoupage with a teacher-applied Mod Podge layer to finish.
Given that I have an entire verse of "Christmas in Hollis" left to teach, two big projects seems fair.
