The Fifth D.I.Y of Christmas - 5 Paper Chains

Paper chains are one of the simplest homemade decorations. My kids (Small and Teeny) make them together and there is quickly enough for decorating a room.

All I do is cut a load of coloured A4 paper into 2cm strips and give the kids staplers to make chains. You could just as well use white paper or newspaper if you were stuck, or wanted to keep things ultra-retro.

We use staplers after a bit of a gluey flop a few years back, Small is mature enough to keep safe, but be sure to keep a close eye on younger (or more mechanically curious) fingers, staples are quick and strong.

Total Time: 30 mins
Total Cost: £0.30 worth of paper and staples maybe? (It's all stuff we have lying around anyway)
Total Christmassy Factor: 7/10
