Cambridgeport is such a diverse school; some of the students will be celebrating Christmas, some will celebrate Hanukkah, and some will not be celebrating either holiday. At Capi we have to be careful with our holiday art projects. We must stay away from projects that are too Christmasy or religious in any way. No Christmas trees, no Santa, no Rudolph, holly, or wreaths. It is a challenge to think of creative alternatives.
I came up with an idea for a homemade non-offensive ornament decorative hanging. We made mini ice cream cones out of pom-poms, brown paper, and a little glitter. Each ice cream cone has a cherry on top and ribbon to hang it. They are absolutely adorable and have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas. They would look great on a tree, but they could be hung anywhere. I'm looking forward to making some of these with my own homemade pom-poms!
