Do you love this guys' mustache?

They turned out adorable and my kids are super proud of their work hanging on the wall!  My students loved these so much, I may bring the prompts back out and allow a "fun write" day with them since we are in school until the 21st. I'd love to hear about your fun holiday plans! Thanks for reading!
