Hello everyone.
I hope you had a great weekend. I did, because I submitted my last ever assignment for Hibernia. Happy days! I also held the Roundstone Christmas Craft Camp today. It was great fun, with lots of festive cheer. Well done to all the children for attending, it wasn’t easy getting out of bed on such a terrible morning. I think everyone enjoyed it! Here’s what we got up to..

The day started on a slightly rushed note, as I couldn’t get into the hall to set up! Luckily I had lots of great helpers who helped me set up, when I finally got in. Once we were all set to go, we got ready to do some art. Again, my helpers gave out the scissors, glue and supplies. I would have been in a muddle without Chloe, Samantha and Aoife!  We started off making snowball wreaths, as they were nice and simple for the little ones. ( pictures to follow) All we needed for this craft were:
Red Christmas tree bows
Paper plates
PVA glue
Cotton wool.

All of which can be found in Dealz for 1.50 each.

We took a break then to play party games, which are listed below. Their favourite was the Santa stocking.

Then back to art.. we made baubles for our Christmas trees. These came out quite well, but the children under the age of six or so found it a little difficult. It was a finicky kind of craft, definitely more suited to 8+.

After a short SOS, we made chocolate Christmas cake! We split up into two teams and made two cakes. The children did it all themselves, all I did was put it in the oven. They were so delicious. 
Here’s the recipe: 
4 tbs flour
 4 tbs sugar
3 tbs milk
3 tbs oil
1 tbs of cocoa power.
 Stir and pop in the microwave for five minutes. Easy peasey! 
Before we knew it, it was time for the candy cane race and the lucky dip. As usual, it was a slightly rushed finish as time just disappears at camp. It was a great ( and tiring) day. Well done everyone!
