Getting ready for the holidays?

Winter holidays are the perfect time for connecting with each other – through crafting, baking, reading stories, and preparing presents. We have collected our favourite pastimes of the season here, and we hope that everyone will find something of interest in our selection. We’ve got stories of winter celebrations from around the world for global citizens, shadow puppet shows for those who dream of simpler times, silhouette winter crafts for creating elegant Christmas decor at home, and playdough mats with paper dolls for getting through the last days until winter vacations in style. 

Seasons greetings from our family to you and yours!

Christmas Around the World

The closer it gets to the winter vacation, the more challenging it becomes to get any schoolwork done. Cue holiday-inspired (but secretly, quite educational) activities! Children will play board games, dress paper dolls, read and colour pages, while at the same time learning geography, history, and folklore, with the Christmas Around the World bundle.
