Several of these ideas came from my wonderful teaching partner, Catherine. She credits Barbara for the "My Gift for Jesus" idea.
The Legend of the Candy Cane ties some Christian symbols to the candy cane.

The kids sequenced the words. I added the real candy canes just before they took them home. This could also be done with candy cane stickers.
We also did some beaded candy cane ornaments from a kit.
I printed, laminated, and added magnets to these adorable Nativity pieces from Activity Village.
