There is always a little extra cheer in the air at Christmas time and we seem to be a little more open to be creative especially with the kids as we can see on their face the enjoyment and excitement it brings.
So, we have put together some of our favourite craft ideas to do with the kiddies to not only keep them occupied but get them into the festive spirit.
DIY Christmas Cards
Even if you are a last minute nelly you don't have to fret about not having some festive Christma cards to give to your friends and family once you have some paper, paint and a black marker all you need are some little helpers.
Let the little ones enjoy some finger painting to create these adorable Christmas tree cards. Simple draw the line the lights will sit on ad leave them to add on the lights.
While you can go out and pick up some paint your own ornaments from many stores an alternative to this is to recycle old light bulbs.
How you decorate them is totally up to your imagination. From Snowmen, to penguins and reindeer's there is an endless supply to choose from. You can take inspiration from the image above if you are talented with a paintbrush or go simple with the kids with some glue and glitter or paint them up and adorn them for the full festive look as the images below demonstrate.
