With Christmas on its way, the debate in our house is now where to put the tree with an eleven month old who is crawling / rolling. There is also the fun activity of making the Christmas decorations! Schools and play groups break up for the Christmas holidays soon, so we thought we’d share our top five Christmas craft projects that the whole family can get involved in.
You will see that they all require minimal materials. A glue gun looks handy for some of the projects. We’ve also focused a little more on natural materials, so you can also go for a walk with the kids to gather twigs and pine cones – which might call for a trip to Holkham!

We’re going to try and make some of the decorations over the coming weeks, so we will share our creations. Let us know if you make any of the suggested decorations, or any other Christmas creations and share via the site or our Facebook page.
