As the age range was so wide, I chose to go for five different activities:
- Card collage, using snowflake motif hole punchers and various colours of cards and marker pens - perfect for making cards, present tags, table place markers...
|Card collage and cut out|
|Heart-shaped pipe cleaner ornament|
|Really pretty snowflake shapes shining through with vibrant colours|
|Stained glass effect ornaments make the most of the winter light|
|Cute little angel|
|The children are very focused and creative|

This afternoon, back at home, we made stained glass window honey cookies. This involves making cookies with the centre cut out, which is then filled with crushed boiled sweets.

On top of all this, I also made a white chocolate and cranberries panettone.
