Start recycling your magazines now! Children love making paper chains and the shop bought packs are so expensive – and some of them have those fiddly little tabs you have to peel off to stick the chains together – and then they often don’t!
Sit with your cuppa (wine) and cut old magazines up into about 3cm strips – approx 12cm long – you really don’t have to be accurate, the children wont care at all! Start collecting all these strips in a box ready for a snowy (rainy) day near to Christmas.
Children love making paper chains, why not challenge them to see who can make the longest – how far around the house can it go? And of course, safety first, hang your chains with care!
