Children Christmas Crafts*

Helloo,

Christmas is not far away, super exciting for me as it is by far my favourite time of year. Today's post is all about some Children Christmas Crafts. 

I wanted to do some crafty bits with Corey as some keepsakes etc for following years. However, I really suck due to lack of creativeness and so beyond impatient. Luckily for me, I do have a lovely best friend and fellow blogger Steph who is really good at all things crafty. Corey and I invited ourselves over for a play date.

Have a look at what we got up too:

My family, Corey and I all love Reindeers. Much to my brothers annoyance as it means we sing the Rudolph song, a lot. Corey was very excited to make a Rudolph card. Steph had done one for Corey to copy. He was learning pen control and the difference between pressure giving different finishes when colouring. With help, he produced a proud that I am very proud of and will treasure :) The next one we made, which was Corey's idea for Rudolph to wear a Santa's coat!

The snowman card I actually done myself, all the pieces were separate and just needed the back pealing off to be able to stick where ever you wanted on the card. It is a very lovely idea and comes out great. But it is so fiddly, probably best for children aged 8+ I would say. I really enjoyed it though - I have a Santa and Rudolph to do now too!

Corey really enjoyed being able to help Steph make the hand print ornaments. He was asking all sorts of questions on how it was being made and getting really involved even had a go at helping roll out the dough. He noticed how the mixture was sticky and cold!

As you an see everything turned out great. My favourite being the hand print ornaments, which are made out of salt dough. Steph made it for us, which is actually so beyond quick and easy with ingredients you will already have in the house. Check out Steph's recipe and how to instructions by clicking here.

The other crafty bits in the pictures were kindly gifted to me by Baker Ross which is a very affordable craft website that you should certainly check out :)

I would love to know if any of you have any ideas for more Christmas crafts or maybe links to your own posts on some?!

Love, Gemma xo
