When I was 6 or 7, my mum and me took a whole day making Christmas paper chains. Mum cut strips from magazines and stuff. Then we stuck them together looped through each other to make our chains.

Pile of paper chains made from cut up junk mail

Paper chains made from junk mail are colourful and cheap!

It really was all day we did it, so we had a huge pile of chains at the end πŸ™‚ When we hanged it up, it went all around our lounge room two times and dangled down beside the door on both sides too!

I loved that day with my mum. And we loved seeing those chains hanging up for weeks. So that’s my favourite Christmas memory.

It’s also my idea of what people can do with kids for fun in December πŸ™‚
