Celebrating Christmas Time!

The children have been excited counting down the days to Christmas. We have been having fun in our room making Reindeer food for the children to put out on Christmas Eve. We also decorated gingerbread Christmas tree cookies, everyone thought this was a lot of fun, including finger licking as they polished off the remaining icing. The decorating was either very precise and planned out or, another technique used was adding as many lollies that could possibly fit onto one cookie. At the end of the day, the children were eager to take their cookies home to eat some even made it out of the front door.



  • Children explore ideas using imagination and creativity
  • Children are curious and enthusiastic participants
