    You could make little stockings and have the students create a wish list to keep in them.

    We are doing gingerbread mean! They will cut the shape out of brown construction paper and then I let them use google eyes, markers, chalk, and candy to decorate them.

    Maybe creating a class Christmas tree? I drew up a huge tree and had each student make "ornaments". They made handprint shapes & circle ornaments with there names on them. This will really be for all grades but it could work fine with 2nd grade!

    For my kids I tied a "clothes line" and I am going to hang up different snowflakes they make and other decorations :) For the door, they are each a snowman :)

    One year, we made a tree out of triangles and squares. Each student received a square and triangle, and decorated their part of the tree the way they wanted. Then, during one of the specials I put the tree up on the wall and when they came back they were SO excited to see it. It was really fun, but also a little time consuming. Now the fire marshall says its too much paper on the wall and a fire hazard :(
