    Haven't started Christmas activities yet, but have ordered lots of items from Crafty Crocodile! I do try to wait until first week of Dec before starting Christmas activities.

    My tree will go up on sun 1st Dec which is Advent Sunday. I haven't started any crafts yet... Although I have quite few bits planned I need to go through it all and see what I actually have!!!

    And then I get a bit obsessed and write a chart of children and Christmas bits and then I can mark off who has done what! Some days it feels like a production line!

    The after school children started after Halloween, the little one started this week, we made a tree from cardboard on Monday (slot tree) and have started decorating it. We make loads and hang it up every where, everyone decorates a bag and on the last day take all their creations and I add some treats to the bag.
