Victorian Christmas Decorations

As part of our topic we learned about decorations that Victorians would have used for Christmas and what traditions we have thanks to the Victorians.

On our trip to Cardiff Castle we made a pine cone decoration and a Victorian style Christmas card. We found out that they would make peg dolls to hang on the tree as well as put nuts in bags as little presents. We also found out that Christmas crackers were invented thanks to Tom Smith during the Victorian times.

We decided to make some of these decorations ourselves to experience what it might be like for Victorians to make their own decorations rather than buying them from a shop like most of us do today. We had a great time making our decorations and we’re so proud of what we’ve produced.

This is the end of our Victorian topic. We have loved learning about the Victorians and we have found out so much about them. We have a lot to thank the Victorians for, especially for some of their wonderful inventions and Christmas trees!
