With Christmas just around the corner, we will all have more time to play and learn at home. Christmas is a time to gather with family and friends during this season to celebrate the year, enjoy the company.
They look to strengthen their ties, to spend significant moments with one another, to spread joy and goodwill.
Children can celebrate Christmas with fun family activities to play and learn together. One of the best ways is to start the Christmas cheer is with arts & crafts at-home learning through play.
Edx Education has developed Christmas activities from upcycling our boxes, searching our feast words and colouring in.
Great for all ages to play, learn and be creative together.
Activity 12 – Upcycle your boxes – Make your own Robot or Santa’s Sleigh
We all love to make things and with so many cardboard boxes and wrapping paper at Christmas, let’s upcycle our boxes and Christmas wrapping paper. Use your imagination to make a Robot.
