Christmas crafting with Twinkl

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but we’re big fans of Twinkl, they make lesson plans and activities and brilliant primary teaching resources. I was looking for some fun activities for the children to do and found a fun gingerbread house printable.

The 4 year loves to colour with his special pens. He keeps these in their packet and doesn’t let his sister use them.

white paint
googly eyes

How to make hand print ghosts:

Little Sis loves to feel paint on her hands so she let me paint one hand with the white paint. Then she carefully placed her hand on the sheet of black paper. We did this a couple of times to make sure we had some good prints.

Leaf rubbings garland

After the 4 year old has finished Reception I set out an Autumnal invitation to play. There were sheets of paper, a collection of leaves and crayons.
