    Hi,

    Only just found your blog but maybe an idea for next year. My fiance is a teacher and I love it when the kids make him a gift, I do keep them and handmade Xmas decs go on the tree! Also good as poorer kids tend not to get gifts but do feel bad about it when they see their peers handing over presents.

      Children’s handmade Christmas ornaments are one of the great joys of life!
