Me Mints Christmas Craft

If you're looking for a quick, easy & fun little something to plug in during those last few days before break, then I think you'll enjoy these "Me Mints" activities. 

The larger one makes an adorable decoration, while the smaller version is perfect for a keepsake Christmas ornament. 

They are super simple to make. 
Using red markers, students color stripes on a small 8 inch paper plate. 

Students cut their photo into the shape of a circle and glue to the center.

Wrap with clear cellophane.  (You can buy a big roll at The Dollar Store)
Tie with green & red curling ribbon (Also found at The Dollar Store) & you're done. 

If you need a December bulletin board, with a high cuteness factor, use green foil wrapping paper as backing, then scatter the "me mints" on top. 

The mints also make a cute border around the edges, so you can display other student work in the center, or look sweet suspended from the ceiling.

To finish off the back, I've included a gingerbread house circle, with a poem:
"You're worth a mint and priceless to me.  I'm wishing you a Christmas as sweet as can be."
