Can you believe that Christmas is literally 19 amount of days away?! Neither can we!! It always seems like we get to this time of the year and suddenly have eight hundred and sixty three different things that we need to get done before the 25th of December: decorating, buying presents, doing baking… the list goes on!
So, we thought – why not compile some of our favourite Christmas craft activities that are not only extremely fun – but are also practical in some way! Here are some festive craft ideas for decorating, creating presents, and just having a fun time making stuff.
Why not make your own wrapping paper using some paints and a potato (or two)?
How about tackling the almighty ginger-bread house? This easy design uses Graham Crackers – you can use any plain square biscuits such as Nice or Thins instead.
Or you could make a sequined wreath to hang on your tree.
Speaking of decorations, why not try making some peg angels?
And you could make some Christmas Cookies as a gift for family members.
What about bundling the family up and making stockings out of socks? Just make sure they’re clean first!
You could make some cool keyrings, necklaces, or broaches out of this amazing stuff called shrinky dink as presents too!
We hope this has given you some ideas to help you have a crafty Christmas season – we’d love to hear about the crafts you’ve got planned for the next few weeks!
And did you catch our post about all the Christmas craft books we’ve got?
Don’t Forget… We have special Christmas storytimes happening in all our libraries between 9th – 19th December. Check out out kids events page for details.
