Christmas is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate in the classroom! By this time of year, the students are getting sick of being in school – so why not take a little breather? Yes, we still need to ensure that quality learning is taking place, but there’s still time for a little fun!
That’s where this Christmas coal comes into play! It’s basic rice krispies, turned black, and then given as coal. 🙂 Anyone with a sense of humor will love this one!
I’ve done this Christmas coal activity with my Kindergarten students and sixth graders. Both loved them! We made a large enough batch that each student got some coal, they were able to take 3-4 home to their families, and we have enough left over to give them to the staff at school. Some of the reactions are priceless!!!
Merry almost-Christmas, friends!
