Christmas Cookie Mats

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me in the Holiday Blog Hop sponsored by The Elementary Grapevine.  Today I'm going to share with you a super fun and easy Christmas activity that I do with my students every year. All you need for this is some large red construction paper (12 x 18 size works best, but you could also do it on a regular piece of construction paper as well), a few other colors of construction paper for some circles, (any colors will work), some white copy paper, and crayons. That's it!

Here's a picture of the completed project (minus one circle, which has been covered by the plate):

This is a sample made by my nephew when he came to visit me at school a few years ago... He did such a good job coloring it!

I have included all the templates and clip art that you need in one convenient download... all you have to do is copy the templates you wish to use, and you're good to go!  Once the cookie mats are finished, I run them through the laminator for durability. I've been doing this with my students for years and it's always a big hit. I hope it something you can use in your own classroom.
