My youngest is in her last year of elementary school, and it just hit me that I won't have many more chances to help her and her friends make ornaments in the classroom. I'm not crafty or even a huge kid person, but I always found this experience to be uplifting and fun so the closing of this door makes me a little sad.
Last year I was pleasantly surprised when one of the ornaments included a button! The moment came back to me as we unpacked ornaments over the weekend.
Here's a link to a little blog post I wrote about it: Paint, Bottle Caps and Buttons Too!
