Hi %recipient.firstname%,


Do you celebrate Saint-Nicholas Day (Decembre 6th) ? When I lived in Belgium, it was a big celebration for kids. I think it was high time I created a project for that occasion.

Here is how to make a little Saint Nicholas hat (called a mitre). You can use it to wrap candies or chocolates, or you can use it as a napkin ring.



We like to promote reading among children, and this year we focus on books written by Canadian authors. We were delighted to get a hold of an interview of Jean-François Faucher, author of the Slush the Elf books. Read the interview on our blog and find out about the free group reading kit for use in a classroom!



Are you already thinking about Christmas preparations? Gifts and ornaments that you make yourself are so much more valuable!

Here is a rocking horse that uses the structure of the paper plates to represent the body of the horse.

The project guide contains patterns for 4 different sizes of paper plates, allowing you to make rocking horses between about 5 and 10 inches tall. If you are going to make a Christmas ornament, choose a size that goes with the size of your tree!
