We're having a little look at all the winter holidays, and also how different countries celebrate christmas. So will be creating things from germany, israel, poland, mexico etc.

We'll be making our ginger bread boys next week, and we'll make our yule logs on the last week - they're going to be early this year cos I'm closing early but the sentiment is there. We'll also make our yule wreath, yule manger and ornaments.

We'll make crackers, stars, pinatas, and all the usual christmasy things too. Then on the last day we'll PARTY!

i have plans! my theme is 'winter' ...

i have lists of things to do!

but mine are 10mth/19mth/24mth/26mth/and 2 just 3 yr olds, so not much planning as such!

we will make cards, pictures, decorations, food & stuff, but mainly as & when the mood takes us! this weekend i plan to get everything sorted into folders for each activity, they i pretty much have it to hand!

i also make a table of each activity and each childs name, so i can make sure everyone does everything, as all come at different times!
