Try this

Why not cut out a large tree shape from cardboard. Pin it to a wall or the back of a door. Create decorations, ornaments and gifts to stick onto your tree.


A game to play

Prepare some tissue ornaments (tree, snowflake, candle, tree made out of tissue). In teams, give each child a straw. Children have to suck on straw to Ďpick upí their decoration and move it from one place to another. The first team to move all their decorations is the winner...or...the slowest team could win!


A joke

Thanks for the electric guitar you gave me for Christmas," little Johnny said to his uncle the first time he saw him after the holidays. "It's the best present I ever got." 

"That's great," said his uncle. "Do you know how to play it?"    

"Oh, I don't play it," Johnny said. "My Mom gives me a pound a day not to play it during the day and my Dad gives me five pounds a week not to play it at night.Ē


Pause for thought

This year, I expect all those who read this will receive a present for  Christmas. Thanks to some of you, children in another part of the world will receive a box full of presents Ėa shoebox, wrapped and sent with love. Some gifts that we give donít have to cost anything in terms of money. Can you think of ten things you could give to people that donít cost a penny? Here are a couple to get you startedÖ spend time with a friend who is upset or lonely, offer to look after someoneís pet-with no reward. Now you have a think...
