Family Matters Most Christmas Bulletin Board Idea

As we {attempt to} slow down during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we are reminded of the blessing of our family. Invite your kiddos to reflect on the love and support they get from family members with this adorable activity and bulletin board idea from Kathleen of Growing Kinders.


Provide your students with a piece of red or green construction paper. Invite them to fold it in half and decorate the front to look like a present, using scraps of ribbon and construction paper as well as other craft materials/embellishments - glitter glue pens, art tissue paper, craft poms, etc.

Inside the present, have students draw a picture of their family and pen or paste the caption, "This is my family. They fill my heart with love."
