Christmas is one of my favourite times of year for doing crafty stuff with the kids. There is so much that can be done – decorations for the tree, Christmas cards, calendars, handmade presents and much more. I have a list of things that I want to do with the kids, and have a Pinterest board full of ideas. The key to making crafting with kids a lot less stressful is preparation. There is nothing worse than starting an activity or getting the kids hyped up and then realising you don’t have all the materials or the resources that you need. I’ve got a little Christmas crafts shopping list which I go through every so often to make sure our cupboard has everything we need in. It isn’t really just for Christmas to be honest – you can use this list all year round!
If you want some inspiration for Christmas crafts, keep an eye on my blog as I will be sharing some of the ones we do. You can also get ideas from my Pinterest board:
