PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Family Conversation Starters -The BEST Holiday Present Idea for Students to Make

This gift is meaningful and special, but is also low cost and easy to make in the classroom. It will quickly become a favorite annual project and your students’ families will surely thank you! It truly is A Gift That Keeps on Giving!

TOP 3 REASONS YOU NEED THIS:
❶ Unlike a craft that will be tucked away, hundreds of parents have reported how much they LOVE this gift because it brings the family closer together.
❷ It is the perfect combination of NO PREP, LOW COST MATERIALS and EASY TO DO yet more valuable than any other gift you could have your kids make.
❸ It makes it easy for students from non-traditional families to make more than one gift so both homes are equally included.

MY STORY & HOW THIS FABULOUS RESOURCE CAME TO BE:

Every December I would struggle to come up with an idea for holiday gifts that my students could make for their families. Some of the obstacles I faced included time, cost, and level of difficulty. Many of my students came from non-traditional homes and would therefore need to produce more than one gift. Also, not all of my students celebrate the same holiday so I needed to come up with something that was versatile. This has been a hit in my classroom for years as well as one of my most popular products.

I recently gave it a complete makeover with updated fonts and images and made the optional blank cards differentiated with and without lines to meet the needs of all your learners. It’s designed to be used with short Pringles cans, but you can use any container (jar, can, paper bag,etc)

Be sure to read the wonderful feedback this has received over the years. It is one of my favorite products of all time and something I cherish using in my own house with my three children as it really helps us stay connected when life gets busy.

WHAT'S INCLUDED
✓ 20 Printed Question Cards {Choice of 2 Fonts}
✓ Blank Cards for Students to Write Their Own Questions
✓ Choice of 5 Labels {draw, write, and/or color}
✓ Lid Cover Decorations with a lovely quote about Family
✓ Letter to slip into the can to explain what it is for
✓ {OPTIONAL} Printable Letter Requesting Donations (Pringles cans, giftwrap, etc)
