Christmas is creeping up! With gifts
to buy for all the children and organising the day, you’ve forgotten about their School Christmas fayre! Panic sets in; you’re sat there thinking “Why did I run for PTA chairman again?” Don’t worry; Muddy Puddles
are here to help. Read on to find out some brilliant last minute activities for an amazing Christmas fayre.
1) Personalised Christmas Decorations
We love some craft, and what better time to get creative than at Christmas? Pick up a big box of mixtured baubles, some glitter, and glue, silver or gold pens and offer children the chance to personalise their own Christmas decoration. They can write their name, designing or drawing on it any way they see fit! For a small charge they can be very popular.
2) Three Wise Men Dress Up
Who doesn’t like some fancy dress? Follow our super simple steps to create an incredible nature crown. Spread some festive cheer by sticking on Christmas themed items such as holly and berries. Best of all, the children have the something to take home with them at the end of the day. Download our free activity sheet here.
3) Biscuit Decorating
Bake or buy some festive themed plain biscuits and sugary treats. Let children create a show stopper Mary Berry would be proud of! Festive colours such as green, red and white icing will work wonders. They’re might even be some leftover for you…it’s Christmas after all. (Well almost)
4) Create a Christmas Star!
Collect plenty of sticks from your local green space or woodland to craft an amazing Christmas star hanging. The children will love painting and shaping a festive object to celebrate the season. For tips on how to make one, download our free activity sheet here.
5) Pine Cone Christmas Fun
Organise a Pine Cone Stand for young archers to test out their shooting skills! Test who has the best shot and simply download our helpful activity sheet here.
