We’re on to the last bit before Christmas now and I know my kids are getting super excited – and a bit worn out from all the things going on at school and nursery! These Santa crafts for kids are the perfect way for kids to relax and have a bit of creative fun while still keeping up the pre-Christmas excitement levels.
I must admit that so far this Christmas I am pretty far behind with everything. Most years I try not to leave everything until the last minute but this year? Well I’ve bought one present each for each of my kids and that’s the grand total of all the Christmas shopping I’ve done so far. As I need to send anything to the rest of our family as well it really is starting to cut it a little bit fine! One thing I have got sorted though is cards and wrapping paper and this year they’re so good I kind of think it makes up for my uselessness elsewhere!
My kids adore a bit of Christmas crafting and I think these Christmas tree crafts for kids are the best, there’s a great selection of different crafts for different ages so you should be able to find something that’s perfect for your kids. I think this is probably my favourite round up that I’ve written in a while, every craft I looked at was amazing and my kids wanted to make them all too!
I think this movable penguin paper plate craft might one of my most favourite things I’ve ever shared on here? It’s super cute and it makes a lovely winter craft for kids too. I’ve shared some penguin crafts for kids before – I still kinda love this upcycled penguin lantern, but this craft is great for using as a puppet too – meaning that you get to play with it once the making fun is over.
Last February we bought our first house which means that this will be our first Christmas here. I love this house but it’s been quite a bit of work – it’s a Victorian building that hadn’t been touched for about fifty years which has meant that we’ve had to do everything, from sanding down the original wooden floors to removing the 1930’s style gas fires and replacing them with Victorian fireplaces instead. There is one slight issue with our home though, as much as I love it, and that is that it can get pretty cold. Being a listed property we can’t have double glazing and we do really notice that in the colder months so our house becomes filled with blankets and jumpers! I’m a great believer in dressing warmer before you turn the heating any higher and now thanks to Moccis we’re able to keep that bit warmer while also looking fabulous. What’s more I’ve got a pair of Moccis to giveaway to one lucky reader too so you can keep warm Scandinavian style this winter too!
