Festive times

Over the last two weeks there have been so many fun times. Christmas get together a and holiday cheer! I went for pre Christmas drinks at my Uncle’s house in Roleystone. I wore my new Sunny Girl 1950s style floral skirt with a plain black singlet & my favourite Japanese cherry earrings!

DIY Paper Christmas Wreaths

These were a bit tricky for my class of year twos but they managed to pull them off and they look super sweet! We started off with a piece of A3 green card, folded it “hotdog” style length ways, ruled a line that wasn’t on the fold & then ruled lots of lines to cut. The full instructions are on my Pinterest board: Christmas Wreaths

Once the kids had cut all the lines, they folded the paper around into a cylinder shape (pretty tricky) and then I stapled it. They then glued on red bows and berries!

I then hung them up in the classroom off some tinsel πŸ˜€

DIY Paper Snowflake Chandelier

I love doing Christmas craft and activities in class. The kids are getting excited for Christmas and the teachers are excited it’s nearly holidays. Snowflakes are a fun thing to make (even though it doesn’t snow in Perth).
I photocopied the template from Pinterest Pinterest
and got the kids to fold and cut.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7cc/75264643/files/2014/12/img_0010.jpg
I then got a hula hoop, tied different lengths of string into the hoop and started sticky taping snowflakes onto it.

It started looking like a beautiful dream catcher.

Once all the snow flakes had been stuck on, I tied the hula hoop to wire across the classroom ceiling.
