Welcome to 12 Days of Parenting – A series of blog posts by a lovely group of bloggers, leading up to Christmas, with all sorts of themes, tips and ideas to survive the festive season with small children in to as well as some great sponsored posts and giveaways.
Mum Without Wheels has shared her Christmas Craft, now read on to find out about ours…
If you are a regular reader of this blog, or follow me on social media, you will know I’m not terribly good at crafts but that my kids LOVE them, so I try to go along with them and participate in all things crafty and you can’t really avoid craft at Christmas with children.
One thing I discovered they love making, and is a perfect activity that keeps everyone happy is making a gingerbread house, or at least getting a good kit, putting it together and then decorating it. Both the children and I love doing this, and it’s usually something I plan for the first day of the school Christmas holiday, and they look forward to it.
You can see last year’s creation here, very sweet, and we were very sticky by the time we’d finished it and were satisfied it was how we wanted it. It’s a good activity for all the family to join in and it’s been good for me to learn to lighten up and accept that my children’s idea of perfect is usually better than mine.
This year, we actually have 4 smaller gingerbread houses each to decorate, one for me, one for the each of the children and one for LSH so we can all make our own sweet creations!
A craft idea you can eat, afterwards. That can’t be a bad thing for Christmas?
The Mummy Balancing Act has also shared what they are crafting this Christmas, why not pop along and visit?
