Talking with and listening to children provides us adults with a window of opportunity to understand what and how they are thinking.
In listening to the children’s ideas and experiences a whole range of exciting possibilities’ may emerge. The challenge is to build on the children’s points of interest.
- What are your favourite Christmas decorations/gifts/cards? How might we make these? (ie using recycled materials)
- What are our favourite Christmas songs and stories? Maybe we could act one out with costumes and home-made instruments out of recyclables!
- Make a small world out of a box, with a chimney for Santa to slide down!
- Maybe we could make cards and decorations for parents and family, especially those who may live away from Ireland! Set out a range of materials, including coloured paper and cellophane, recycled Christmas cards and tags, tinfoil, glitter, sequins, and ribbon for inspiration.
