5 things to keep the kids entertained this Christmas

Posted by Beth Pickard on

Looking for things to do to keep your little ones entertained over the festive period, then look no further than our Christmas craft kits for kids. From wonderful make your own crackers to homemade jumbo paper chains, here’s five fun activities for them to enjoy – and (hopefully) give you a little break.


Have a go at Christmas cards

Personalised cards are far more special to receive than shop bought. Get your kids’ creativity juices flowing by enabling them to create their own designs to send to friends and family. You’ll find 12 cards and envelopes in our special packs, with a selection of festive cut-outs, stickers and pom-poms to decorate them with.

Create a crafty tablescape

 If you’re keen for a more sustainable table setting this Christmas, then why not order this brilliant plastic-free kit. It includes contents for kids to make their own crackers – they’ll love deciding what goodies to fill them with – along with 16 place cards. Is there anything sweeter than your child’s handwriting.

Decorate a mini Christmas tree (plant)

If you can’t help but find yourself re-decorating the tree once the kids have gone to bed, (it’s not about multiple decorations on one branch for us either), then this kit is for you. Filled with 12 card baubles, 2 metres of tinsel and a star topper, all you need to do is give them a plant to dress and they’ve got their very own Christmas tree.

Make your own paper chains

A classic festive decoration and quality family time well spent, why not get everyone together for an afternoon of chatting and making paper chains. Our pack features two jumbo festive designs with a red or green reverse and outlines to colour in. Being reusable, they’ll serve as a lovely memory in Christmases to come.

 Write a letter to Santa

A lovely family tradition to start is writing a letter to Father Christmas. Our kit includes one decorative blank letter to Santa and two envelopes. Pop it in the post before the 10th December and your child will receive a personalised reply all the way from the North Pole.
