Holiday Card Making at MS 172

This December, the students of MS 172's Desi Young Women's Leadership class all enjoyed a seasonally festive holiday card-making activity. Equipped with an ample supply of colorful stickers, stamps, glitter-glue, markers, glitter-pens, crayons and pencils, the young women were able to transform blank cards and envelopes into masterpieces of their own. Each student was given the assignment to make an entirely unique card with a special message for another student, and were later offered the opportunity to make another card for a family member or friend. While some students chose to brainstorm acrostic poems utilizing their classmates' names, others decided to write witty jokes in their holiday card messages--either way, they were all able to channel their inner artist and celebrate the holidays with this heart-warming activity.
