So for our last visit to Bear Woods for 2014 I took some tinsel & bows up as to see if the children would like to try & make some Christmas art with the mouse mats.
Although tinsel may not be still in favour for the majority of people anymore, I think it will always hold a special place in the hearts of preschool teachers & young children!
The children fell on the bag of Christmas 'stuff' with such enthusiasm & soon were creating lots of pieces with a lovely sparkly, festive feel. One child had a big fat piece of tinsel & declared it was a 'baby dragon' & with it's bright red eyes it did look very effective. Some others then tried to create other creatures too whilst some just wanted to see how many pieces they could fit on the mouse mat.

By the time we were leaving Bear Woods was looking very festive indeed.
