Turn December into a winter wonderland with our very merry Christmas activity pack! As with all our themed activity packs, this collection is cross-curricular and packed full of hands-on fun for ages 4-12 (recommended estimate, depending on the individual child).
We suggest the elves (or yourselves!) deliver the pack to children on December 1st – giving them plenty of time for a lovely festive build up to the big day. You could use the pack as a magical standalone study unit or as a supplementary resource.
The pack is suitable for children of all ages, younger children will need adult support as is appropriate for them and older children will be able to get on independently. Some of our activities involve the use of things like scissors, knives and ovens; children will need appropriate supervision for these. Many of the activities can be enjoyed as a family – as long as you believe in Christmas magic then this pack is for you!
Amongst other things children can put on their favourite Christmas tunes and relax with our festive mindfulness pages, get busy in the kitchen with a range of tempting treats, design a fabulous festive jumper, save the day in several Yuletide Lego challenges and create their own North Pole themed bingo game.
There is acrostic poetry, clever candle science, perplexing pinecone investigations, season’s greetings from around the world, Santa’s sums that need solving and festive story starters. Plus, several opportunities for children to lead their own studies as they find out about reindeer, how Christmas is celebrated in other parts of the world and what it’s really like in the North Pole.
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without stitching a stocking, constructing a pop-up card, carefully crafting snowflakes, searching in Santa’s wordshop and penning a letter to the big man himself! We’ve also included activities for spending some time reflecting on memories of Christmases past and considering potential good deeds to spread Christmas cheer.
Please note that not all pages need to be printed, there are plenty of activities that don’t need printing. Our hard copies are beautifully wire-o bound in silver with laminated 350gsm covers and uncoated 120gsm paper inside. We recommend HB and coloured pencils to be used in our packs as felt tips may be heavy and show through the pages.
It’s going to be a magical, sparkly ride as we jiggle all the way to Christmas, we do hope you’ll hop on board the sleigh and join us!
We aim to dispatch packs within two working days of purchase; we cannot control or guarantee delivery times.
