::: Christmas wrapping paper

The Christmas presents our children give their parents are their portfolios which they (and we) have been busy compiling all year.

They love to use their own decorated paper and they usually make various sorts. Last year they painted with edicol dye.

We have started to get the Christmas wrappings happening as it takes a while to get enough together for 54 children!

This last week we put out paint dabbers …

which were bath scrunchies …

and washing up sponges.

Sherry envisioned lots of dab, dab, dab …

while Donna thought there would be more swirl, swirl, swirl!

Typically the children mixed it up …

and the resulting paper …

was pretty gorgeous!

    Love the red and green signal that it’s Christmas – and nice, and of course not surprising, to see really open-ended materials – not a stencil in sight! 🙂

    ::: You’re right Louise we do love a good individual style around here! 🙂 🙂

    I agree with Belinda…..we’ll really like to take a peak at your portfolios, we are putting together ours and a bit of hint would be fabulous!!!!!

    ::: Ranu it’s a bit tricky to put up photos of the children’s portfolios as they contain so many photos of the children and a lot of ‘private’ information. Our portfolios, which we call memory book contain around fifty pages over the year including photos, work samples, observations, parents goals and input and anything the children might choose to pop in there! 🙂 🙂
