CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR CHILDREN TO MAKE

Personalised calendar
Ginger & Cinnomon salt dough gingerbread tree decorations.
The children made calendars and fragrant salt dough tree decorations to give to their parents for Christmas.  

The calendars have been very successful.  I use photos of iconic places where we live that the children are familiar with.  The children get to choose of course.  The children then add a rainbow (super easy for all my 3-4 year olds) or whatever they like using Little Birds Tales.  We use the interactive whiteboard but they have an app too.   I build the calendar on word adding a photo of the child 'painting'.  There are lots of creative possibilities.  Please leave a comment if you would like more details for how to make.

The fragrant salt dough tree decorations smell wonderful.  I started makinging them several years ago and families that I meet say that they can still smell the spices.   Please leave a comment if you would like more details for how to make them.
