Easy classroom decor for Christmas

Despite Thanksgiving being so early this year, Christmas really came quickly.  I guess implementing a new curriculum has the effect of making it seem like all my days run together.  I did manage to do a few very simple, but cute touches in my classroom to make it feel a little more festive, while believe it or not, keeping within my color scheme.  

My windows all decked out.  See the green and blue snowflakes hanging off the light?

I will replace these with snowmen after break.

I have some other snowmen window clings for after break.

These will be up until Feb.  

Snowflake border that will stay up until Feb.  Don't I have the best view?!

Pink snowflake.  LOVE!

My favorite decor item.  I was sad to take it down on Friday.  :(
I really like to keep the holiday decor simple and as "wintery" themed as possible so it can go up after Thanksgiving and stay up until Valentine's Day.  Everything was bought after Christmas last year, with the exception of the snowflakes.

Teacher gifts for my boys.
I hope you are all having fun with any last minute holiday preparations.  We are doing our family of five Christmas celebration tonight after dinner at PF Chang's.  I wrapped all the boys' presents last weekend and I swear every single day my 7yo asks when we are opening our "family" presents.  Gosh I wish I could keep that boy little forever.  To see Christmas through the eyes of a child who still believes is just about the best thing ever.  Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  I am hoping to get myself back on track with blogging during my Christmas break.  I have lots of ideas to share with all of you!
