Our poundland has loads of Christmassy craft bits in which I’ve just stocked up on. We also make our own Christmas cards in different styles each year, paper chains, and do some simple Christmas baking but not sure if that counts as craft?

If you’re thinking of homemade presents we’ve turned glass jars into reindeers and filled with reindeer noses, turned flowerpots into reindeers and filled with chocolates and this year we’re turning flower pots into Father Christmas to be filled with chocolates

Salt dough is good fun. I made lo's handprints into Santa and his footprints into Rudolphs last year. We gave as gifts to family.

You can buy plain christmas baubles and get lo to do a white paint handprint holding onto bottom of bauble. Then add scarves, buttons and noses with sharpies to turn each fingerprint into snowmen. Cute personalised baubles.

The usual making snowmen from snowballs.

Pinterest is great for ideas!

Just an update with what we did in class yesterday:

1) Marshmallow snowmen - 3 marshmallows, matchmakers for arms, icing as glue and strawberry lace for a scarf.
2) Plate reindeer - paper plate, hand cut outs for antlers then red shiny paper for nose, white paper for eyes.
3) Ice lolly stick tress decs - stuck 3 together in a triangle and stuck sequins on
then twine for the loop.
4) Elf and santa hats - use card to make a cone, cut out some ears and a pom pom.
5) Card baubles - same as the lolly decs but used circles and other shapes.
6) Snow globe - Filled a jar with water and glitter, stuck a photo to the inside lid.

We’ve added a few to our list:

We made Christmas cards yesterday out of gold cards from the pound shop, stuck green triangles on for trees and then covered with glue and simple sparkles

Cut out more felt decorations for our felt trees, covered with stickers and stuck on with Velcro

And our hobby craft had loads of cheap polystyrene Christmas models which we bought ready to paint
