How to Go Green this Christmas

A Teacher's Idea, www.nicadez.com


I am so excited about a recent project at our school that I just had to blog about it! Our mission was to use foil wrappers to make Christmas decorations. Yes, you heard right! Christmas decorations! At first, I thought that it would not at all be an attractive accomplishment. I thought that it would make the tree look a little too drab or boring but boy, was I wrong! As our school community came together to accomplish this feat, there was an added sense of relief for me and a great sense of pride. The tree turned out pretty FABULOUS! We made angels, 3D balls, 3D stars and lots of fan bows! This made me realize how much money can be saved on decorations if we turn discarded items into a functional item. Take a look at what we did! Wow! Totally, amazing!
