Craft activities with the kids don’t need to break the bank. There are plenty of things you can make out of the stuff that’s lying around in your home!
Ho Ho Ho! Give your home a little Christmas spirit with these fun tree decorations. Don’t have a tree? Not to worry – you can hang them off anything, or even give them as presents.
What you will need
Make a hanging paper Villi
Download and print out the Villi template. Cut out the shapes from the template in felt or paper.
Decorate each Villi – maybe a cozy winter scarf, or a woolly hat. You could even add googly eyes for a little extra fun.
Fold each Villi and stick one half of the back to another Villi. Continue until they are all stuck together. Add a ribbon to hang it up and it’s done!
Make an EPIC pom-pom bauble
Cut Pom-Pom maker shapes out of cardboard. Wrap wool around the cardboard until it’s covered.
Insert your scissors in between the two pieces of cardboard and cut around. Wrap another piece of wool around the Pom-Pom and tie.
Slide the cardboard disks off and you now have a bauble. Decorate it how you like. We’ve made a Richard bauble.
Make a festive chain
Cut felt or coloured paper into strips about 3cm wide and 20cm long.
Curl a strip of paper around to make a loop and stick the ends together with glue. Feed another strip through your new loop and glue together.
Add links one at a time until you have a long paper chain. Once you have a chain – decorate it with creatures – we have a template to start you off in the PDF.
