For our holiday bulletin board I gave each student a coloring page Christmas tree. After each child colored their tree they had to write about their tree. (My tree has nine ornaments. There is a yellow star on the top of my tree.) I had the students write on some holiday stationary I had which had animals with presents around the border. They turned out GREAT!! The students were so excited to do their best so their work would be displayed on the board.
Here is a student sample:
