What could be more festive than cosying up with a spot of Christmas crafting? Making things is so good for our mental health – for adults and kids alike! When we are absorbed in a task we forget about our worries, plus having something to show off after a creative session boosts self-esteem. You don’t have to spend a fortune on fancy crafting materials either. Our simple ideas for decorations to make with children use objects that can be salvaged from the recycling or picked up on winter walks. So gather the family together, put on some yule-time tunes, brew mugs of hot chocolate and have your very own crafternoon.
