Holiday craft ideas


My holiday: Paint a picture about your holiday. What did you experience/see and where did you go.

  • Identity Document/ Who am I. Make your own identity document/ passport with a picture and fingerprints.
  • Use handprints to make a butterfly.
  • Invite friends over and play games outside such as hop scotch, pin the tail on the donkey, three legged race and egg race.
  • As it is autumn take leaves and make a picture.
  • For colder days use tinned food and other groceries and open a ‘store’ in the kid’s bedroom. Allowing them to ‘sell’and ‘price’the groceries helps with cognitive development.
