You can use the Christmas Paper Chain for all sorts of things! Below are some ideas.


Hang up on the wall. Because the chain is made of paper, it’s quite light so good quality blu tack works well.

    We bought a pack of 200 sheets of really bright coloured paper from Kmart for $2.00 and did exactly this. Was cheap and easy and the kids loved doing it. We also did a bit of learning with the 2yo by asking her to pick a colour and or tell us what colour we picked up.

    We made all our Christmas decorations this year and it was a lot of fun! I love your printables too :)

    Thanks Kelly, my 5 yo daughter is always wanting to create something. We will be doing this tomorrow together with making play dough – you are a lifesaver :)
