Yes! It's nearly that time of year again! Ho Ho Ho
I love doing crafts with my kids and making pressies for the rellies so thought I would share some of our favourites [smile]
Materials - paper, glue, scissors, pen
Cut 24 pieces of red and green colored paper app. 1x6 inches.
Glue the first piece together to make a ring.
Put the second piece through the first and then glue into ring shape.
Continue until the chain has 24 links.
The fun comes each morning when the kids get to take a link off the chain. They can watch as Christmas morning gets closer and closer!
Ideas to put on the papers
You can add this poem to a piece of paper or board that you hang your chain from.
December 1st until Christmas
Is the longest time of the year.
It seems as though old Santa
Never will appear.
How many days until Christmas?
It's mighty hard to count.
So this little chain of links
Will tell you the exact amount.
For more fun, plan out 24 Christmas activities that will each take about an hour. Write each idea on a piece of the chain. As a link is taken off the chain, read the activity you will do that day. Some ideas are:
*singing Christmas carols,
*putting up decorations in one room,
*writing Christmas cards to 10 people,
*writing a letter to Santa, or
*going for a drive to look at Christmas lights.
Have Fun [smile]
