A fun creative activity where children of all ages can create their own festive designs.
You will need:
- A variety of paints
- Christmas shape playdough cutters
- Large paper
Pour the paints onto plates or trays, then give the children a choice of colours and playdough cutters. Allow the children to dip the edges of the cutters in the paint then press it onto their paper. The children can use both sides of the cutter to experiment with the width of their lines.
Whilst completing this activity older children can develop their mathematical skills and become more familiar with colours and shapes.
