...and giant nutcrackers

Hi %recipient.firstname%,


Did you know that there are 47 projects on my site where you can use pompoms? I already published two methods for making your own pompoms: one with cardboard circles and another one with a fork.

This week, I show you a method that does not require any tools. Make a pompom just with your hands!



The Animaplates website contains many Valentine's Day projects. One of the projetcs that has a lot of success this year is the bouquet of hearts. You can fill the little hearts with messages or chocolates!

One teacher who made this project wrote: Fun, the kids loved making this.



My two neighbours worked faster than I did and they finished their giant nutcrackers before Christmas. Here is a picture of their creations. I can't wait to be able to show you mine!



Because you are a Pro

The Lunar New Year is an official holiday in China, with 7 days off work. Unfortunately, this year the festivities are subdued because of the viral epidemic.

I hope that as you read this you are in good health and I present to you a second zentangle colouring page with a rat (or mouse), in honour of the Year of the Rat.

The other new printables published last week are on a winter theme.

You'll find a pre-writing exercise with a snowflake, a sudoku 6x6 with winter games, a connect-the-dots picture of a snowman,

a spot-the-differences game with penguins, a maze and a colouring page.
