Craft Ideas – Making Xmas Decorations & Gifts
The Christmas spirit is essentially about families, so we have some less commercial ways to make Christmas a really special time for your family.
Some of our most popular pages include Christmas crafts like making some easy homemade Christmas decorations, or a homemade Christmas gift, or you might also like to start a tradition for your own family, or give to others.
There are many families less fortunate so it is a great time to share some of our own good fortune with others and encourage compassion in our children.
There are a huge range of child friendly Christmas craft ideas that are great for both school aged kids looking to make a unique gift, or toddlers who want to add something special to the Xmas tree.
Christmas Cooking and Treats
Stirring the gingerbread mixture!
Christmas is also about food and family and one of our favorite times is the few days leading up to Christmas when we start making some lovely treats for friends and family, as well as for the Xmas table.
The kids will love getting involved in some special cooking or Christmas crafts.
If you’re stuck for presents, many of these Xmas cooking treats can be carefully wrapped or displayed and given as gifts.
Christmas Games and Songs
If your kids need entertaining then the Christmas Games can be traditional or twists on modern favorites. Many Christmas activities involve stories and songs, this is how the spirit of Christmas is kept alive.
Just share the magic of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, the famous Christmas tale by Clement Clarke Moore, or some of your favorite Christmas carols and songs, to get you, and your family, into the mood.
