Merry Christmas from Brazil!

Everyone likes to get a card or present in the post and December is certainly the month when we receive lots of them!  This year instead of making traditional Xmas cards the arts and crafts class decided to make Christmas Tree Decorations.  Armed with plenty of paper, coloured pens, glitter, stars (and all the other goodies that make for a good arts and crafts project) the project designed some very creative and colourful decorations that can be folded together and hung from your Xmas Tree. The designs that the children came up with certainly reflect the sun and colour of Brazil so it really is a little bit of Brazilian Xmas sunshine for the christmas tree this year!

Click here to watch a video clip of the decorations being made (and of course the children showing off their designs) or watch it from the project video gallery on the right.

Feliz Natal / Merry Christmas!
