Last week when we were making our driftwood Christmas cards we all got a bit excited about making cards ourselves and so we created these drinking straw Christmas cards too. They’re super simple but there’s also a little bit of learning and fine motor skills involved too which makes it into a great Christmas activity for kids.
A couple of weeks ago my lovely friend Jen asked me if I’d like to be involved in her kid made Christmas card series and of course I said yes and then I remembered two teeny tiny issues. We didn’t have any cards or craft materials. I did panic for a bit but actually this is real life in which sometimes you kids decide that they want to make things and you have to improvise a bit, even though I have a lot of crafting stuff my house is not Hobbycraft and, like most parents, I have to make the most with what we have. This driftwood Christmas tree card came about after a walk that I shared some pictures of on Instagram, filling my pockets with some freebie craft materials.
