Toddler approved Christmas cards

I love doing crafty activities with Lily. Maybe it's because my own craft skills are, shall we say, a tad immature, but I enjoy the simplicity of stickers, or cutting and gluing, maybe splashing some poster paints around.

So it shouldn't come as a surprise when I say that making our own Christmas cards to send to close family is one of my favourite parts of the run up to Christmas. Last year I cut little Christmas trees for Lily to decorate with stickers but this year I let her pick what she wanted to do. Her choice? Snowmen.

Luckily, I now live super close to a Hobbycraft store. After stopping there briefly for supplies I let Lily (and Ollie) loose with some card blanks and a choice of sparkly stickers.

Lily got straight to work. Ollie, unsurprisingly, was more interested in eating the finished product than actually doing much but he was fascinated by the glitter on the stickers. The snowman, his hat, scarf and the snowflakes all came in one pack from Hobbycraft and I can really recommend them for creative toddlers.

I'm pretty pleased with the finished products! It's got me in the mood for more festive arts and crafts activities and I'm sure I'll be making a few more trips to Hobbycraft, as well as our local Poundworld for more cheap and cheerful supplies over the next couple of weeks. For our next project, I'm thinking of making some decorations.

In the meantime, I'm going to pop these beauties in the post before I forget!
