GUEST,ClaireBear Christmas gathering suggestions sought (15) RE: Christmas gathering suggestions sought 18 Nov 04


Two standout activities that come to mind are popcorn stringing and paper-chain making. Also, if anyone in your church hoards old Christmas cards, they can be cut out and converted to ornaments with a red or green paper background, a bit of ribbon to hang, and a little glue.

Then they can be hung on a garland to dry, an be taken home at the end of the evening.

More complex, but loads of fun, is providing wood scraps (the weirder the shapes the better) and letting the children glue them together imaginatively and/or paint them with water color or temperas. They can become animals, airplanes, trains...you get the idea. Of course that is dependent on someone in the community having a collection of interesting woodscraps (or being willing to beg them from an appropriate business).
