When I do a cutting and gluing activity, I like to squeeze in some writing too, so I made this base paper that I use to glue the project onto.
There is space on that right side of the paper to glue the craft, and then lines on the left side to write a little something.
I usually have the kids write what they like about the holiday that the craft pertains to. I’ll tell them to write 5 things that they like about valentines day, or Christmas, or thanksgiving, etc. I think that I use this base paper with all of my cutting activities.
