Christmas is perfect for getting the whole family together and spending quality time doing the things you love. While the kids are off from school for the Christmas holidays and England soaks up an abundance of rain and snow, it’s the ideal time to get making crafts that are not only fun for the kids to do but will also give you some lovely homemade treats. Here’s some of our favourite ideas for crafts you can create with your kids this Christmas season.

Craft Your Own Festive Stockings

Make sure you’re ready for Santa by getting the kids to create and decorate their very own Christmas stockings to hang on the fireplace. Making your own festive stocking is simple with our craft set that includes everything you need – meaning you can have all the fun and crafting satisfaction with none of the hassle! If they already have their own favourite stocking, not to worry – why not see if the kids want to spruce up their stockings with some unique decoration? With our festive craft kit, it’s easy to jazz up stockings, and you’ll even have leftovers to help with the rest of your Christmas crafting!

Write a letter to Santa

Get the kids excited for the big man to arrive by creating fun letters to Santa. A letter that has to go all the way to the North Pole of course has to be special, and nothing could be more special than our letter to Santa activity pack. The pack includes two letters to Santa, stickers to decorate, and even a reply letter all the way from Lapland! Make Christmas feel more real than ever for the little ones by getting them to decorate their letter to Santa, and then excitedly wait for a reply!

Once you’re on a roll with writing letters to Santa, why not get the kids involved with making your Christmas cards? Everyone will love the personalised effort, and your kids are sure to enjoy helping out when they see all the fun crafting accessories they can use to create their own masterpieces! We love using foam stickers, glitter and festive stickers to effortlessly make letters and Christmas cards come to life.
