It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

When I was a little girl, we use to make paper chains to hang around the room at Christmas. I thought the kids would like to do this so I gathered them all together and away they went...

Roshana had more fun playing with them!

The end result, hanging behind our Christmas tree.

Another craft we did one afternoon was to paint each kids hand gold, then I pressed it to paper. I then cut around the hand, wrote their name and year behind it. Then I laminated it, punched a hole at the top and threaded ribbon through it. A lovely keepsake.

W e did the handprints at Playgroup and a footprint and with the hands stapled to each side we made reindeers.
Lovely keepsake
