This week we’ve been making cookie cutter Christmas cards. I’m going to hold my hands up and say that Christmas card writing is probably my least favourite Christmas activity, so getting the kids to do some homemade cards always makes it more bearable for me! These cards may not look like Clinton’s finest, but they are kid made and are great to send to family members. Plus cookie cutter crafts are fun for the kids so that’s a good thing by me!
Winter and Christmas
This week I thought we’d try to make our own Christmas tree ornaments with these cute toilet roll reindeer decorations! They were loads of fun to make and are a great frugal Christmas craft too, everything that we used was something I already had, or in the case of the ‘antlers’, something I could easily find in the garden!…
I’m officially doing the ‘It’s nearly Christmas’ dance this week as our tree is up, whoop! One of the ways we’re getting into the spirit of things is by reading loads of Christmas stories, so for this weeks Tuesday Tutorials I’m sharing some Christmas crafts inspired by books that have been linked up here!
I had a sudden panic before I blogged this. Is it too simple?! Is it pinnable?! Then I remembered something really important. This was fun. Yep, it was fun and I did it with my three year old son and he enjoyed it. So that’s a good thing right? Actually it’s a great thing 🙂 So here’s the cotton wool candy canes we made, because hopefully you and your kids will find them fun too.
I’m a bit obsessed with suncatchers. I love having something fun to hang up in the window and I love having the sun shine through them, making them light up. Even though the days are a bit grey and dismal at the moment these Christmas suncatchers are a fun craft for kids that help to brighten up the place a bit!
