“Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

GlitterOr, if you don’t want to risk pricked fingers maybe you could deck your halls with simple and gorgeous Christmas themed paper streamers All you need is some black sugar paper, metallic crayons, glitter (I’d plump for gold, silver, red and green), glue, double sided sticky tape, and drawing pins. Then settle yourself in for an afternoon of merriment with these three simple steps.

Step 1 – Cut paper into lengths and get your willing little helpers to be as creative as they like with glue and glitter and crayons on one side of the paper.

Step 2 – Once the strips are dry, take one end and form it into a loop. Cut a small piece of double-sided sticky tape and secure the two ends.

Step 3 - Then, simply feed another strip of paper through the first loop and secure in the same way. Keep going until you reach the desired lengths and then hang using the drawing pins.

Of course, there are hundreds of different colour combinations and bits and bobs you can choose to make the decorations from. Here are some more suggestions:

Keeping Clean!
And, of course, making Christmas decorations, with profuse amounts of glitter and glue, is always a messy business. So, to keep parents happy we’d advise a cover-up. I’d recommend our thick Nylon disposable aprons, which can be used more than once, or these great little Nylon re-useable smock cover-ups with elasticated cuffs and Velcro fastenings.
