I have had so many requests for my holiday ideas and patterns and I finally have them ready all in one packet! Kinderbykim Celebrates Holidays Around the World pack includes fun projects to do with your children while visiting six different countries. This pack includes patterns for pinatas from Mexico, tannenbaum hats from Germany, Saint Lucia Day hats from Sweden, fun Menorah hats from Israel, Father Christmas from England, Hawaiian doll puppets and mini stockings from the USA. Full color photos and patterns included. Plus information about each country to attach to the projects. For more fun holiday ideas see kinderbykim.com December page.
I'm sorry the Father Christmas was not what you were looking for.. I have two other ideas I do for England. The First Christmas cards originated in England. I take old holiday cards and let the children cut them up and then glue them on new construction paper cards. They love making their own designs. The other fun activity is to make "Party Poppers" out of tp rolls and let the children fill them with a holiday message, a few little goodies and then wrap them in tissue paper and tie the ends with curling ribbon. For both activities I add an tag saying what country the item originated. Hope this helps :)
