Christmas Games & Quizzes

As much as children love to hear the same stories over and over again, it helps to embed it when we tell it in different ways using as many senses as possible. So this Christmas consider sharing the Christmas story in lots of fun ways, such as Christmas games and quizzes. Download

Christmas Crafts

Christmas lends itself to craft making, baking and all those nostalgic and traditional activities. How many of us still have those macaroni spray painted angels made by our preschool children in our decoration box? They tell a story and hold memories of special times. Making crafts together also creates opportunity to chat about the Christmas story as we go and unpack the true meaning of Christmas and what it means to give and not just receive. This resource is a compilation of crafts taken from the web. Download
