B's kindergarten teacher sent a notice home with all of the names of the children in his class as some parents had been requesting them for Christmas cards. While they said parents should in no way feel obligated to do this, that it does help the kids to develop their reading and writing skills.
Thankfully I save the covers of old Christmas cards for occasions such as these so this "craft" cost a grand total of $1.15 for a box of mini candy canes.
I cut the cards into 4 or 6 depending on the size and B wrote on the white parts and affixed a candy cane to each with scotch tape. We wrote the first few together and then B worked on the rest on his own with some checking in every so often.
Perfect way to use up old Christmas cards!
