My family likes to decorate for the holidays. I like to keep my children busy, whether making crafts, snacks or reindeer food. Making a paper chain is something they can all do, it looks pretty and we can recycle some of those Christmas sale circulars. How to make a paper chain: Materials : paper*, scissors, pen/pencil, Adirondack Family Time Christmas Template The paper can be as heavy or fancy as you wish. I used the comics as it was colorful and we could dig out something from our recycle bin. Kids of all ages can do this indoor activity. I made the template a bit large so that little hands could help with cutting. This is a good exercise for eye-hand coordination.
