Christmas Tree advent calendar

There's still time to make your own advent calendar, and this Christmas tree design is the perfect pick. The design by Pink Stripey Socks is easy, fun to make, and better still you can invent your own advent activities to go on the back of each tree.

Handprint Christmas baubles

This Chirstmas craft idea from Whatever is a beautiful way to create unique and pretty decorations.

All you need is plain baubles, craft paint, markers, a few bits and pieces to decorate with, and children's hands.

These hand decorated Christmas baubles are a great way to personalise Christmas.

Martha Stewart snow globe

There's something about snow globes and Christmas time.

This craft activity from Martha Stewart needs a little more grown-up help, but the kids won't tire of their very own, homemade snow globe.

Thumbprint snowman ornament

Clay has endless possibilities, but these thumbprint snowmen decorations from Lines Across have to be one of the best Christmas-related ideas.

They're easy, kids can do most of the hard work and they're perfect for any Frozen fans in your house.

Stained glass nativity decoration

Decorations aren't just for the Chirstmas tree. These fake stained glass nativity scenes from Housing a Forest would look lovely hanging in the window too.

You don't have to limit yourself to a nativity set either: you can cut out any Christmas related scene to decorate with fake stained glass.

Christmas tree art

Forget restricting yourself to red, green, and gold. This artwork by Whatever is all about sparkles and colour.

Sure to make a huge mess, the art can be made by kids of almost any age (with some help) and will brighten up any room you need.
