Christmas Resources for Kids and Schools

Christmas is fast approaching. To help you out we have created some Christmas-themed activities for parents and teachers alike. Print off one of our activity sheets. They are not only tailored to our Kiwi Christmas, they also encourage the goodness of 'paying it forward'. Meri Kirihimete!
