What Do Math, Decorating and Christmas Have In Common?

*this is an updated post from 2009*
I am a teacher.

I must have an answer for everything.

So when a child asks me "Am I ever REALLY going to use this?" I need to be able to definitively say "Absolutely."

So when I say this idea on a napkin, I knew I had to make it mine.

For the non-math people this means "Ho ho ho." (The example I saw had (ho ho ho) under the big "Ho" (insert your own jokes here), so I understood what it meant, it might have taken me while otherwise :)

Simple instructions...
Pick two colors
Use one to paint a canvas (mine is about 8x10)
Find a font you like and print out your phrase
Cut out the letters and trace them with a pencil
Paint the phrase with the 2nd color

For those of you with a Cricut (or however you spell it) you can whip this out in a second.

I gave this my daughter's 4th grade math teacher who happened to be covering exponents that week in class! By the end of the day the whole school was asking each other:

"What is HO cubed?"

They even stumped the principal!!

I'm linking up with The Homebody. Come by for other great gift ideas!
