When it comes to Christmas it’s tempting to trot out the traditional art and craft activities – after all, there’s always a display board that’s crying out for a little seasonal spirit.
But for many of us our happiest memories of Christmas have little to do with cotton wool and glitter and a lot to do with colour and light. Here’s an opportunity for your class to shine a little light on their preparations for Christmas.
In this project, experiment with some of the resources often found in the classroom at this time of year – balloons, sticky tape and tissue paper – but combine them in an exciting way.
- Experiment with construction techniques
- Explore the effects of light on translucent materials
- Create decorative sculptures for the Christmas classroom
