Kindergarteners at Ocean Avenue Elementary spent the morning making holiday keepsakes with loved ones on Dec. 6. The dough students were provided with to create the keepsakes, made of nontoxic ingredients and a whole lot of cinnamon, filled the school with a delicious smell. Students enjoyed rolling out the dough, cutting it into holiday shapes, and getting a little messy with their family members. Once dried, these keepsakes can be used as holiday decorations, and are meant to last for years to come.

“We do this every year so students can create something that will always remind them of their time at Ocean Avenue Elementary,” said Principal Sabina Larkin, who started this tradition at the school.

In addition to the morning’s activity, the holiday boutique, organized by the PTA, was set up in the hallway. Classes were able to visit at scheduled times to purchase holiday gifts for family and friends.
