Need Something For The Kids To Do? Try Your Hand At Festive Christmas DIYS!
The big day is almost upon us!
The lights are up, the presents are wrapped and Santa Claus is coming to town. While the last few weeks have been a bit stressful for more reasons than the regular Christmas rush, we’re still getting into the spirit of the season. Our usual festive plans have been thrown in the air this year, and with so much uncertainty, many of us are at a loss for things to keep the wee ones busy.
If you’ve had to cancel plans and are in want of things to do, then don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Crafts and DIY’s are our favourite thing for wiling away the hours with our nearest and dearest, and we’ve tried our hand at everything from summer crafts to upcycling. We’ve collected some of our favourite festive DIY projects, that the whole family can get involved with. So, scroll on for fun Christmas crafts your kids will love.
Get Them Out The House And Creative, With Fun And Festive Decorations
Who says you can’t be active and creative?
While the weather outside is frightful, this craft is so delightful! Nice weather might be hard to come by in our part of the world, but we know how important it is to get the kids out of the house. Winter walks are a staple of the season, so why not encourage your kids to make something creative out of it? These Pinecone Gnomes are adorable and take little to no effort to make.
We love this tutorial from Bowdabara, and you can even turn them into terrific tree decorations. All you need is a few pinecones and some basic supplies including felt, glue and a button for the nose. These holiday gnomes are a wonderful way to keep the kids entertained, and gets your little ones moving and crafting.

Here at Taylor’s on the High Street, we love upcycling. From dressers to sofas there’s really nothing you can’t do with a bit of creativity and determination! While we’re all about getting the whole family together to try out new things, we get that upcycling can be a bit too demanding for little ones.

Why Wait Around For Snow? Make It A White Christmas With This Easy Paper Craft

While we might not have Lapland levels of snow, you can still build a snowman. This craft project from White House Crafts is fun, festive and fabulously easy to make.
With just some paper and a bit of tape, you can create 3D decorations that can be popped up on the tree or around the house. The whole family can get involved, and in just a few minutes you’ll have adorable snowman decorations that’ll get you in the seasonal spirit in no time.
