Go and buy discount ribbon. Last year I bought some really cheap ribbon after the holiday and made ribbon wands out of it. You can check out how I did that in the post that I wrote earlier this month about how to make DIY Ribbon Wands and Jingle Bells. I have plans for more ribbon that I’ve bought to make some other fun manipulatives. Again, buy that now before it is gone!
General decorations. Do you want general decorations (Santa stuff, stockings, reindeer, garland, etc) for your room at school? Get it and pack it away now. I found some really great glittery Christmas trees last year for pennies. Awesome! Check out THIS PAGE of my website to see how I decorated this year.
Santa hats. You never know when you’ll need em for concerts or decorating or holiday parties. They’re usually $1 each year at the Dollar Tree but right about now they’re usually $.33 each. Check it out.
