Welcome to DECEMBER! Tis’ the season to be jolly, am I right? We have had our tree up for a week now as my little helper (11 year old nephew) had decided it was time. He has also helped me to pick some crafts we think you may enjoy with your kids this christmas. A round-up post with a mix of activities suitable for different ages and abilities but most can be adapted to be age appropriate! Enjoy crafting.
Make your own painted pasta christmas tree cards to send to friends and family. Everyone loves a handmade card, right?
Grab some tiny pom poms and make some pretty pinecone decorations…
Pipecleaner snowflakes would look beautiful hanging in your windows or on the tree.
What kid doesn’t love putting their hand in paint? A perfect christmas activity for little ones who like to get fully stuck in! Hand print reindeer.
Printable Christmas cones for imaginative play. Click the “Santa & co Paper dolls” under the DOWNLOAD title, as all of the blue button downloads are spammy adverts (boo!)
Why not make your very own Winter wonderland scene from cardboard boxes? Same download instructions as above.
Recycle those toilet rolls and create some Christmas characters, another great activity to inspire imaginative play amongst children.
Make your very own reindeer antlers, print the template on to coloured card / paper or colour them in yourselves, allowing for some very unique reindeers.
Or if you’ve got a child who would rather be an elf, this ones for them.
Last one on this list is the cutest little idea for babies first Christmas, Mistletoes! This blog link has plenty of ideas for prints using tiny feet and hands to create something special this Christmas.
