We made snowmen today with paper plates... A smaller plate for the head, bigger plate for the body, decorate however you like but adding essentials (carrot nose, scarf, buttons etc), make a hat to stick on top, attach the plates with some string tied through little holes so the body dangles, stick on twigs for arms.

We also did handprints which I'll turn into wreaths for their bedroom doors... Lots of green and a few gold handprints, I'll cut out and stick onto a paper plate (middle removed) and then add some tissue paper berries. I'm shocked my 20 month triplets let me handpaint them!

We're also doing a snow scene similar to Melanie B... I got my 4yr old and 7yr old charges to draw 5 snowmen, a couple of xmas trees and a few houses which I'll use to create our scene with cotton wool snow.

I'm also planning to draw large-ish xmas pics (santa/santa head, penguin, xmas tree, elf, reindeer head) and get each of my charges to decorate however they choose (obviously I'll 'help' the little ones) and we'll put them up around the house.

Luckily this a new job this year so I've got tons of ideas already for next year! And I've already decided what to replace the xmas scene with in the new year... I'm really not arty though  Undecided

Not a new year scene... I'm going to do paper plate caterpillar with numbers on, possibly 1-5, my little charges can paint&decorate it all and hopefully learn their numbers from it, might add some other bits to the display too.

My 3 year old charge made a robin and a reindeer from paper plates.
For the reindeers antlers we painted sticks from the park instead of pipe cleaners.
The web pages are below.

I painted E's feet white and printed onto blue card, turned it upside down and J made  it into a snowman. I also did the salt dough hand print and painted it to look like Father Christmas.
