I am a huge fan of using one item in as many ways as possible and this Christmas I found a set of wooden Christmas shapes from kmart for $3 that I have used as is in:
· transient art
· sensory play
· maths invitations
· fine motor opportunities
· and for DIY resources.
There are 24 small wooden craft items and after getting 2 packs I went back for more!
Decorating Santa’s beard transient art style.
They were perfect for transient art or as Christmas loose parts (if you are not a purest). The invitation went with the book Have yourself a HAIRY little Christmas (there are 6 other was to use the book in another blog). The children enjoyed decorating Santa’s beard with them and other items (cotton wool, pinecones, corks and stones) I used Kmart Christmas tongs to add interest and an element of difficulty.
