A Christmas Craft.

It’s no secret that we do a lot of crafts. In fact, my blog was originally a children’s craft blog, and although we have less time to do them these days, we still all really enjoy doing them when we can. Christmas is the best time of year for crafting – the possibilities are endless!! Over the years we have done quite a few, and below I will be sharing some of our favourites.

Paper Plate Christmas trees

How cute are these? They were so simple to make, and we still have them hanging on our tree two years later. You can find all the instructions by clicking here.

Handprint wreath

This one was one we did a few years ago, and it’s a lovely way of remembering how small the kids hands were. It’s also ridiculously easy to make. Click here for the full instructions.

Torn paper wreath

This is one we did recently, and it looks great. It doesn’t take long, and as far as crafting goes, is pretty mess free!! Find out how we made it by clicking here.

Snowflake Handprint Poem

This handprint snowflake poem is perfect for popping on the fridge or for adding a calendar tab to for lovely homemade CHristmas presents! | www.parenthoodhighsandlows.com

Another recent one from us, and one that went down really well at the stay and play group that I run. Print off the poem here.
