    I have 3 ks2 children who can't watch the nativity tomorrow due to religious reasons. I need an activity that will last about 30-45 mins. Non religious if possible as they've already done a huge project on their own religion throughout nativity practises. I just want them to have a lovely time with me. Thanks.

    Cookery? Could they make truffles or sweets for the rest of the class

    I saw a churchful of christmas trees the other day. Some were recycled materials but very effective e.g. a triangle of salvaged cardboard covered with wrapping paper and inside (facing the viewer) were empty plastic milk containers of ?2 or 3 litre size with the different coloured tops facing out. Working out how to make the outside from measuring the containers and then cutting and sticking should be useful fun. If there's time over they could paint lights on the bottle tops.

    I assumed the children couldn't take part in anything Christmas related?

    Haha. I did chuckle at that.

    I think Christmas tree making might be out of the question! Arty things are always good though. I'm sure they would even appreciate doing a 'normal' lesson with the opportunity of a small group.

    Thanks everyone. The nativity has been postponed to Monday. I'm thinking of trying the truffles with them.
    Yes it definitely can't be

    Get a board game out and play that with them. Ask them to create a game that they could teach to the rest of their class.
