Are you looking for the perfect gift or ornament for your kindergarten students to give their parents? Here is a roundup of projects teachers from the Simply Kinder Teacher Group have done with their students.
So many great holiday projects and gifts were shared in the Simply Kinder Teacher Facebook Group that I wanted to do a roundup of all of the great ideas!
