Christmas Craft Round Up • Last minute ideas

Only 2 sleeps to go! 

Are you having a relaxing 48 hours or are you madly dashing around doing last minute shopping?!

We are moving a few more bits into the rental house today and then packing up for our Christmas on the go! We head up to Surrey tonight, ready to greet my brother and sister in law at Heathrow tomorrow at 7am!

We are meeting my sister and her family in Church for the crib service and then it will be back to Mums for our traditional Christmas Eve routine. Carrots, reindeer food, stocking by the fireplace and we will read Twas the Night Before Christmas. 

Christmas morning will be magical with Patrick and Carlotta home for the first time in 4 years, then we are off for Christmas lunch and a sleepover with my little niece at my sister's house. We have already downloaded the old song "Baby's First Christmas!"

Boxing Day will be in Poole at my in laws then we have a couple of days in Southbourne, a pantomime and then a trip to Oxford to be with all my family. I can't believe that this was only last year, our Safari Christmas! In one year this side of my family has been through the most horrendous ordeal and we all just have to hope and pray that the new year brings good news.


We are heading back to Poole for New Year and our best friends will be joining us as my in laws are away! Midnight in the hot tub - marvellous!

I had a few other new festive posts to share which I will just have to save for next year now, but here are a few from last year, if you fancy a last minute activity!

Why not make some Reindeer Food?! 

Looking for something more subtle? Why not print your own festive words page and use it for bunting? Click here for the downloadable file.

Guaranteed to get everyone giggling - DIY Window Stickers from fabric paint! 

Easy to make and delicious to eat crispy cake trees

What about making a lens scrunchie to help get everyone looking at the camera?!

What about making up a Christmas scavenger hunt

Perfect for grandparents - print your own photo cubes and get the kids to decorate them!

No time to bake - no problem! These Rudolph biscuits are so simple the kids can make them!

Cocktails can be for the whole family! Try this Cranberry idea!

These candy floss snowball pops were my favourite thing I made last year! 

Buy a cheap canvas and make your own light picture

These Santa Pops are just too cute! 

I am signing off now for a little while to enjoy this precious time with my brother and spoil the boys with attention. They have been so dreadfully ignored over the last couple of weeks with all the house moving stress! 

Don't forget to check out my festive ideas from this year too! Make cute fruit ice cubes, party nibbles and these pigs in blankets in sleeping bags are too easy not to try.
