Thanks For hopping over from My Thoughts On Things.

There are 1000’s of websites that will give you inspiration on Christmas crafts and I found two Crafts that I thought my Girls would love.

On Sunday I went shopping and got a few bits so we could create some Christmas Decorations. I went to BnM Bargains. They had quite a selection to choose from so we grabbed the essentials and made our way home.

I also invited my two nephews round so they could get involved. The first Craft we did was Salt Dough Snowmen.

To Create these you will need:

  • Plain Flour: 2 Cups
  • Salt: 1 Cup
  • water: 1 Cup
  • Paint
  • Goggley eyes
  • Bottle tops for the hats
  • Pipe Cleaners for the scarf’s
  • Paint
  • Anything else you would like to use to decorate.

Salt Dough is very easy to make and can be used to make a variety of things.

Mix the flour, salt and water together to create a dough. Nead until soft and give it to the children to make whatever there hearts desire.

We made snowmen which made some nice decorations to put round the house. Once the children have finished making there creations, Bake in the oven on gas mark 4 for around half an hour until hard. They are now ready to paint and decorate.

The next Creation we made were Christmas Tree’s, we made these by cutting out a circle and making it into a wide cone shape. we used Green Glitter card to make them sparkle. I then put out lots of pom poms, all different sizes and colours and the kids decorated them as they wanted to.

My children really enjoyed Creating these Christmas decorations, it also kept them quiet for at least 2 hours so I was able to get some cleaning done.
