Thought it would be a nice to share any art activities that we are doing with our charges over the next few weeks to give us all some inspiration  Grin
Here's my first contribution - a snowman!
We covered a soup container in toilet paper and glue then painted it white and the stuck on the foam and pipe cleaners to decorate. We did one for mummy, daddy and my 2 charges.

I made angels at playgroup last week, i just cut out head and body shape then stuck on some wings. Then let the children decorate it with glitter.

Have made handprint wreaths at after school club and also advent calendars.

My nanny friend made reindeer cupcakes. Haven't got a photo though sorry. Normal cupcake recipe. To decorate, use butter icing with drinking chocolate/cocoa powder in it and spread on top of cakes. Cut glace cherries in half and put one half on each cake in the middle, with two raisens and get some curly wurlies and cut them into 3-4 pieces or chomp bars and cut them in half and put in top/side of cake and you have rudolf the red nose reindeer cakes.

We made angels today at church by drawing round a foot for the body and drawing a face on the hell.  Decorate with sparkly bits and used doilies on the back for wings with pipe cleaners for a halo taped on the back.

Sorry, no pics though - very simple and easy to make!

As it's 1st December post you Christmassy crafts and recipes here!

I have an activity for slightly older children to start off.

Glittery snowflakes:

You need lots of ring reinforcement stickers (those white ones that look like polos)
Loose glitter
PVA glue
Thread

Stick the rings together starting with a clump of 5 or 6 slightly overlapping in the middle. This is the centre of your snowflake.
Build up your snowflake by overlapping the rings slightly
When you have finished tie a thread though the centre of the snowflake so you can hang it up
Coat both sides in white glue
Dredge in glitter
Hang to dry!

I've made my charge a village snow scene on her bedroom window. I lined the bottom of the window with a white/silver plump tinsel (Pound Shop)
For falling snow l threaded white cotton through a cotton wool ball and tied a knot, then leave a space and repeat.
The houses, I cut out different shaped houses tall, square and rectangle. I added small bright, shapes of different colours for windows and doors, roofs and chimneys. Then glued together, I simply stuck them on the window with Sellotape.

Her sister, I've made her baubles. I cut out from yellow, pink and red metallic card, different shapes, l doubled up, then put a strip of red or silver thin Christmas ribbon inside , then glued both sides. Like making a sandwich. Then I've hung it from her window.

I'll post them on Fb  Smiley

We also made really lovely Christmas Pudds. Cut out brown card in a circle. Then cut white card as dripping cream, with green felt l cut two pieces of holly and l bought a bag of Christmas Pom-Poms from the Pound shop.
Literally layer everything..glue the white cream on the top of the pudding, then glue the holly and finally add two red pom-poms. For currant effect use a black felt tip.

Once these are done, these look fab !!
