Christmas: Part 2

I’ve forgotten how manic Christmas is at the end of the school term. Creative Christmas, Christmas hats, Christmas dinners, Christmas Fairs, Nativities, the list goes on…

Here, the children (Aged 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6) have been busy too with all things Christmas…aren’t they a talented bunch?!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and we’ll see you the other side in 2020!

Christmas: Part 1

Unlike many other Childminders, I point blank refuse to start anything Christmas related before 1st December! I like to avoid Christmas fatigue setting in before the big day which can be overwhelming in itself for children. That said, it doesn’t give us long to motor through all our Christmas related activities!

So far, the children have enjoyed pretty Snow Princess sticker scene boards and some fun Santas workshop ones. We have been reading Dear Santa by Rod Campbell and colouring in Christmas Present pictures. We have made some lovely cone angel decorations and decorated some wooden decorations for the children to take home for their Christmas trees.

The younger children have also been extending their vocabulary learning new words such as “halo” and “sleigh”.

Check back soon to see what other Christmas fun we have been having!
