Decorating the Table

The first of December I brought in some evergreen boughs and little vases and asked
                    the children to make centre pieces for our snack table.
I put a bit of florist foam in the red vases but it was difficult for the children
                                 to poke the thin boughs into.
      So we used a skewer to poke holes first and that made it a bit easier.
For some children this activity became a sensory play.  “It’s pickly” said the
older child.  The younger child ran her fingers over the needles again and again.
            They add a little festive colour and smell to our snack table.
