This was created to honor our cafeteria staff. The entire setup was created with boxes covered with giftwrap.

The students enjoyed the Jack-o-Lanterns project so much at Halloween, the same concept was used to create this Christmas bulletin board.

The top four bulletin boards were created just to look pretty in the hallways of our school. They were all eye-catchers that just made the students smile.

In the final photo, students created descriptive paragraphs. Just lift up the lightbulb covers to see the student written descriptions of Christmas lights. You could take this idea and really go with it. Have students make all types of shapes and then write descriptive paragraphs about each. These could include stockings, reindeer, sleighs, or Christmas ornaments.

Expand the writing activities to include stories. The shapes could have multiple pages that  lip like a book. Imagine a stocking shape with an entire story about a family's Christmas morning beginning with seeing what Santa left under the tree to opening gifts, and finally going through the stocking to find small treasures.

Another possibility is for students to research seasonal topics and write short reports. Examples might include the first Christmas tree, customs in other countries, the origin of the "elf on the shelf," or the hidden meanings behind a specific Christmas carol.

The possibilities are only limited to your imagination.
