Christmas Craft

Christmas Craft

It is almost Christmas time!

It is time for Santa to start loading his sleigh and getting ready to put presents under our trees! Today we have another craft video led by one of our Occupational Therapists teaching you how to make a Christmas tree ornament. This is a great craft to hang on your christmas tree, or to gift to family members. However, it is not just lots of fun to make, but it also works on fine motor skill development. Scroll to the bottom to watch the video. 

 

Project Play Therapy would like to wish all those who celebrate a very Merry Christmas!
