The Pre-K Kids

You know the heartfelt gifts that you get from your kids at Christmas time...the ones that they make at school that usually involve a hand print or an ornament that they work so hard on? As parents, we love getting those gifts, but because of the struggling economy, GiGi's teachers were hesitant to ask the kids to bring money for supplies for the gifts to be made this year. The school usually hires a lady to come in, and she makes a ceramic piece of artwork with the kids.

I decided it would be fun to take on this project and told the teachers that I would take care of it this year. I gathered up a few jackets and hats from GTO and GiGi's closets and headed up to the school on a sunny morning.

To keep it inexpensive I purchased frames at the dollar store and spray painted them shiny red. I also purchased foam mats to make picture ornaments which will hang on the gift sacks. I will post more pictures and the completed project next week. For now, enjoy these cuties. Oh, and by the way...Princess GiGi has 16 kids in her class. ELEVEN of them are BOYS!

This is the only picture that I did in black and white, but I love how it turned out.




And here is Miss GiGi posing like a pro. :)
I hope the parents are happy with their presents this year. :)
