Hi, I just wondered what everyones favourite things are to do with their children at Christmas / Winter. I enjoy making cards and an individual Christmas decoration out of Salt Dough. I also like to include the story Stick Man and have an Role-Play themed around an Elf Workshop. I am also interested in using the Elf on the shelf as a stimulus to add Elf Challenges into free-flow for children who are interested. I have made a video here. From a religious point of view, I like to teach the story of Mary's journey and break it down into sections leading up to the birth. I also find using the lego bible pictures a nice resource for this. Usually I do a Nativity around this time and use the songs throughout the day in the background whilst the children are playing. What are your favourite ideas for Christmas / Winter?
