The December festivities continued this week and last with children taking part in activities which celebrated Christmas and Hanukkah. At the craft table children made Christmas wreaths using paper plates and coloured paper for the holly
and berries. They also decorated wooden tree shapes using sparkles and sequins. Some of the children in Bumbles
decorated Menorah lamps which are lit during the eight-day holiday of Hanukkah. For an interesting podcast about the Jewish festival visit the Cbbebies website.
There was also plenty of opportunity for the children to take part in small group activities which are a great way to develop social skills and interaction with others while having fun. Hopefully this will encourage them to join in with family games over the Christmas break!
