Christmas Craft Ideas For Kids

We love Christmas and we love crafts so when Wyndsors asked us if we would like them to send us a box of Christmas craft fun we were very excited.

The Real Father Christmas

Bob is only 5 but she is already questioning Father Christmas. I think we have a few years of the magic left but I am having to explain things to her a lot more.

Bow & The Shaving Foam

We go to a lovely sensory play session on a Wednesday morning. Each week there is a different theme. Last week’s theme was the weather. We made rainbows with coloured ribbons, tried to freeze things with our wands and there was even a foam machine for when the weather turned wintery. At the end of each session there is messy play. Bow wasn’t a fan of the ice cubes. Every time he touched them he instantly pulled his hand away [click here to read on]
