Sometimes it’s that you can’t face the cue at the post office, sometimes it’s because you want to send a gift that will last all year, either way I think subscriptions make brilliant gifts for people. Today I’m sharing 5 subscriptions that will make perfect gifts with ideas for subscriptions for kids, subscription boxes for grown ups and even the one I find the most tricky – ideas what to buy your parents!
We’ve officially reached that time of year when all my kids want to do is Christmas crafts and these sweet scrunched paper Christmas trees were perfect as it was something both my three year old and my six year old could enjoy. Tissue paper makes for a lovely sensory craft too with its noise and the feeling itself of scrunching itself and this simple craft is great for helping with fine motor skills too.
Visiting Santa has been a bit nerve wracking this year, last year my son noticed that one of the Santa’s he saw was wearing a fake beard so obviously couldn’t be Santa and this started to make him question the whole thing. Not so much that he didn’t believe any more, but enough that he knew that it wasn’t Santa he saw. So seeing Santa this year has been with a bit of trepidation this year. Would it be the Santa who helped him believe in the magic or a bloke with a stick on beard that took the magic away? So when we were invited to review Breakfast with Santa at Wyevale Garden Centre I was excited, but also a little nervous.

We do a lot of crafts and activities here but only some of them pass the most important test – do my kids get up the next day and ask to do it again? Well I’m happy to report that this Christmas jelly babies STEM challenge passed that test!
