Sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that kids love doing the most and making a Paper Chain to decorate our room is fast becoming a favourite with J we first did it for Halloween last year and have done it for every celebration this year matching the colours to the celebration. To decorate for Christmas we’ve decided to delve into my scrapbook paper collection to make the Paper Chains this time.
What you need to make a Scrapbook Paper Chain

How you make a Scrapbook Paper Chain
This is something that we do quite often and instead of heavily supervising the paper chain making – I set up a creation station and let J get on with it.
Set with strips of Scrapbook paper that I had cut up for him, some sticky tape he got to work creating the paper chain.
With our paper chain complete we then hung it up at our window to make it look even more festive.
