Creativity has been the byword this month at The Hive. The children have enjoyed a wide range of different Christmas crafts from fabric and felted wreaths, pom-pom tree decorations, felted trees and stunning festive pom-pom wreaths which were turned into cute reindeers, Christmas puddings and robins. Decorative stone bird ornaments have also been beautifully painted and lush soaps have been made. We would like to say huge thank you to all the children for all their hard work and creative talents in making this year’s Christmas bazaar such a wonderful success and to Tara, our superstar helper, who helped us sell all our wonderful crafts on our stall.
Throughout the month the children have had opportunities to make a large wooden snowmen, participate in our ongoing busy bee wall display, colour in Christmas stockings and Rubix cubes, design and create a lovely jam jar snowman full of yummy hot chocolate and marshmallows as well as bake Pizzas and delicious tasty jam and cream scones, mmmmm, yummy!
The elf on the shelf has been out and about, surprising and entertaining both the Breakfast Club and Hive children. He’s been spotted in a variety of locations like the Breakfast Club’s Cheerios cereal box, hiding amongst the wool, dangling from one of our ceiling tiles and taking a nap in a slipper. He even disappeared for a couple of days and was seen in Tesco’s among the unsuspecting cauliflowers, tee hee!
We would like to leave you with one of our favourite Christmas jokes.
Wishing you all a ‘Mary’ Christmas, a Happy and ‘Elfie’ New Year!
Mrs Smith and The Hive team
