Toys, snowmen, stars, garlands and different types of Christmas decorations were made. They enjoyed working with spray paint on stencils to decorate the windows.

The IOM staff put up two Christmas wish boxes in which each child put their wish for the new year. All the children showed their own creative skills in making the decorations. The workshop continued throughout the day, with the children continually joining in with different ideas.
