There’s paper everywhere in our house, Fireman Sam would have an absolute fit. Occasionally, I chuck a big wodge out, but I’m a hoarder and I am always trying to think of things to do with it. These mainly involve cutting, sticking and painting. Everyday I try to do one of these things, its usually painting robots. Although we did stick some leaves to some paper the other day.
Anyhow, I have discovered the solution to entertaining the children with minimal amounts of paper. Paper chains! I haven’t done them since I was little and I always thought of them as Christmas things, but look at these funky ones in the picture. They look really cool in the bedrooms.
The kids love making them, very carefully and slowly. It is an activity which fulfills so many aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum that I feel like some sort of activity genius. Minimal cost too. Go and get some (from somewhere) or make your own from scratch, you will be thanking me!
