I was in school briefly today, to take the end-of-term Christmas assembly. The Year 6 children were very keen to show me the decorations they had been making this week.
First, they had produced Christmas wreaths using fabric yo-yos
A very simple idea, and then embellished with stick on 'jewels'
I really must do some yo-yo crafts myself, having purchased a yo-yo maker in a sale a few months ago.
The display of wreaths hanging on the wall looked very striking.
Finally they had done 'Iris' folding, to make designs to decorate calendars which they are going to give as gifts to Grans, Mums and Aunties!
Having removed the net curtains in the lounge, in anticipation of the Window Man, I decided things looked a little bare. So I strung some golden baubles instead [another bargain - £1 for 48 from B&Q January Sale 2009]
