How about an origami puppy in a Christmas stocking stuffed with candy canes and lollipops.
Students traced a stocking pattern and cut a colored stocking top. Matt board cut into 1 x 2 pieces were used to print white tempera patterns over the stocking. The patterns were called "poles, X's, and mountains." An origami puppy head was folded from 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 white 20# copy paper. Tag board candy canes were flavored with fat and thin colored stripes - imagine blue for blueberry, green for mint or sour apple, mmm good! The kids were buzzing about their favorite flavors.
