A Favorite Holiday Memory

One of my favorite holiday memories is making little crafts or gifts during Christmas time as gifts for others. I still enjoy doing that for my neighbors or my students. 

Since I teach over 500 students, I now only make a small gift for every member of my choir at school. At the end of my Christmas concert, I give them something fun that they will enjoy but doesn't break the bank since I have about 70 choir kids. 

During choir, we have a break where we tell jokes and kids just love corny jokes, so I decided to make them a joke bookmark. It is practical and fun! 

I added a warhead candy cane (sour but the candy cane is just a little sour and plenty sweet, unlike the warheads candy) and put it into a bag with a header to make it extra fun. The warheads candy canes were only 17 cents each at Walmart. They will love it! 


This could also be a project for your student to give as a gift for parents or siblings. Print them on card stock. They just color the bookmark and cut it out. You could laminate it for durability. They then punch a hole and insert ribbon. 


If you like this and want some more joke bookmarks, plus editable toppers for adding your own special note, you can find the full set here
