This workshop can fit into two and a half hours and can last up to half a day depending on what materials and detail are added. For older children the workshop is slightly different, with cutout windows , to show the light from a battery powered tea light. I developed two alternative workshops to work with yr 9's at Prenton high school, with the first house becoming a box to hold gingerbread ingredients and the second to hold a gingerbread man tree decoration.
Christmas Baubles make a good extension task or a full workshop depending on what materials and decoration you decide to use. They can be made from various recycled materials including Christmas Cards, wrapping paper and tetra packs. One version can be made to folded out with the bonus that when Christmas is over it can be folded away as a book for easy storage until next year.
Altered book Christmas Baubles take half a day to make and are suitable for adults.
