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.
