It is officially the Christmas holidays so to make this time with your family even more special we thought we would share with you some of our favourite Christmas activities. Whether your child/children are babies or older we have something suitable for all the family.
Make their first Christmas one you can remember forever with some hand and footprint art. Footprint reindeers or a handprint Christmas tree, you can even cut these out and hang them on the tree each year.
Why not go out on a nature walk with your little one and pick up some things you can paint and add to your tree. Acorns are great for these types of crafts as you can tie string to them easily and they will last years to come.
Save those toilet rolls and make some of these super cute ornaments. You could even add some string and hang them to your tree.
Cut out some triangular pieces of cardboard and wrap them in green wool, you could even stick some coloured sequence or cotton balls to the trees for added decorations.
Buying Christmas cards for every friend and family member can be expensive, this year why not make your own. This is a great activity you can do as a family and why not use last year’s cards (if you have them) to cut apart and decorate your new ones. If you have already sent all your cards this year, then why not make some for your neighbours?
Ran out of tinsel? Looking for a little extra colour on your tree this year? Why not pick up some coloured paper and make this simple but affective paper chain decoration.
Instead of a traditional gingerbread house this year, why not make one out of cardboard that can be brought out each year…..and it saves all those sticky fingers.
Looking for a Christmas craft idea for older children? Pick up some felt in assorted colours, cut out your desired shapes and sew them together, these are great decorations to give out as gifts.
And lastly why not try out our gingerbread cookie recipe. They will be a massive hit on Christmas day.
Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes
We hope these activities help make your Christmas break extra special and you have a wonderful Christmas day when it comes.
