Kids Making Teacher Gifts

December 19th, 2011 by zoe 3 Comments

Some last-minute gifts for the teachers.

The boys hand painted terra-cotta pots for Amaryllis bulbs.

I am pretty excited to share with my children the joy of giving, which after all is kinda sorta the whole dig dang point of the holiday season.

I have a memory that on the Little House on the Prairie the children were pretty excited to simply get one of these for Christmas….

    My mother always put some oranges and walnuts in our stockings. You’ve brought back an ancient memory. THanks

      Marsha, I guess oranges in your stocking goes back to the origins of the stocking tradition! From what I understand the folklore story is that St. Nick threw gold coins or balls into ladies stocking hanging on the mantel for a dowery and oranges in turn were used to symbolize the coins. Who knew!
