Celebrating Christmas with Purple Mash

Nov. 30, 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At this time schools across the country are preparing for the Christmas nativity, searching for the missing wise man, wondering how on earth they are going to get the glitter out of the carpet, hoping that the staff room is full of chocolate treats and working out which Christmas card delivered into the post box needs to get to which child.

For all those in between moments 2Simple have a range of stocking fillers and Christmas activities to see you through the weeks ahead; from writing projects, to mash cams and everything in between, there is something to suit every year group over the next couple of weeks.
