We all know kids love the festive season, but now you can build up the anticipation for the big day even more with these brilliant and easy Christmas crafts ideas.
From making a reindeer Christmas card using a footprint for a face to homemade snowglobes using jam jars and salt, these ideas will fill your home and family with joy.
Add a pop of festive colour to your table this year with these Father Christmas-inspired cutlery holders.
To make them, gather some toilet roll tubes and flatten them. On one side of the tube, cut out two semi-circles at the top and bottom. Then cover the tubes in red and green coloured tissue paper (as seen in the image below).
To make the belt, cut out a 2cm wide strip from a black piece of paper and fold it around the tube and secure it with glue at the black. Then for the buckle, cut out a square from some yellow tissue paper and stick it on top of the belt.
Cut out two small circles for the buttons and stick down with glue.
Grandparents will love receiving these reindeer cards made using your child's footprint! They're so personal and a fun way to see how much little ones have grown.
Turn your home into a winter wonderland with these pretty snowglobes. All you need is a jam or mason jar, glitter or coarse sea salt, waterproof glue and then some small toy animals or Christmas ornaments to sit inside.
