The Twelve Days of Christmas song is very familiar to most of us. In the lead up to Christmas, why not incorporate it into your children’s activities? This messy activity is suitable for groups of any size.
Follow our simple step-by-step guide to have a go at this PSED activity today:
Show the children how to dip their potato stamps into the paint and then let them decorate their trees with pears! Once they’re finished, help them stamp a brown bird (or partridge) on the tree to complete the image.
While this plan is Christmas-themed, it can easily be adapted to a non-Christmas setting. The painting could simply be a picture of a tree that the children fill with leaves!
