  7. Will you be so kind and add a cut-out decoration page to the beginners activities. Thank you

    • Hi Helen, thank you for your feedback, we’re happy to make changes! Would you like us to add scissor lines to the tree graphic on page two?

      • Hello, no, I mean, decorations. On page 3 there’s a poem, but there aren’t objects, such as baubles, angels, stars and so on, to decorate the Christmas tree with. If it’s possible to add them, that would be great. Thanks
