Holiday Cards and Candy Canes Provide Personalized Winter Recognition

Personalized Cards

Have staff members draw names and create a holiday card for the person whose name they choose. The opportunities are endless, e.g. singing cards, candy-decorated cards, original poems, etc. Have a gathering at which staff can present their holiday card.


Kindness Canes

Give each person a candy cane with a personalized self-esteem enhancer attached on a holiday card. Your messages might express sentiments such as “Your smile brightens everyone's day” or “Your kindness toward others if marvelous” or “Your enthusiasm is contagious.”


“Next Year” Day

Have staff members draw names and give gifts that could either help or delight the person in the upcoming year. The gift could be a calendar, coffee mug, magazine or book, t-shirt, New Year’s Eve Party favor, pen, or a gift of “time” such as covering recess or bus duty, etc.
