Wreath making magic
Dowse your classroom in the festive spirit with an engaging wreath-making session. There’s nothing more traditional than a wreath at Christmas and the process of making them can be really enriching for children. Invite your students to craft diverse wreaths using handprints or tissue paper, turning these creations into charming displays for the classroom and entrance door. These collaborative projects add festive cheer, foster teamwork skills, and delightfully and educationally encourage creative expression among your students.
Shine some light on your classroom
Brighten up the vibe in your classroom with the captivating charm of fairy lights - an idea sure to delight your students! This idea works well if you don't have much space at your disposal. Embrace the charm of simplicity by adorning your classroom door with twinkling string lights. Engage your students in a creative endeavour by crafting mini paper bulb cutouts using colourful cards. Delicately arranged along a string, these bulbs can become a delightful addition to the classroom door, instantly casting a warm and festive ambience. This simple yet impactful decor idea not only adds a touch of joy but also showcases the spirit of the season without requiring extensive space or resources.
Crafty Christmas trees
It's not Christmas without a tree. So what better way to bring some colour into your classroom than with some mini Christmas trees? This craft is easy and inexpensive, not to mention lots of fun for your students! All you'll need to do is equip them with supplies such as card paper, glitter and felt-tip pens and allow them to explore their creativity.
By folding the card into a cone and painting it green, your pupils can easily have their own Christmas tree to adorn with sparkling decorations. These personalised, glittering mini trees serve as delightful accents for desks or display areas, fostering a charming festive ambience within the classroom. Plus, they can even take them home at the end of the term!
In short, Christmas is the perfect time to embrace learning in a fun and interactive way. With that in mind, these are just a few ways to decorate your classroom. You may have your ideas or even let your students contribute!
