Christmas Crafts with Yellow Moon

This Yellow Moon delivery was very welcome, it’s actually perfect timing really as it’s freezing outside and I want to find something fun to occupy the boys.  They are hyped up on everything to do with Christmas so themed sets especially go down well at this time of year.  We had a friend over at the weekend and her two young children so they were quite happy to be involved too.

The boys were keen to make Christmas cards for their teachers; there is nothing more rewarding than seeing them be creative.  It’s much more thoughtful than bought Christmas cards because they have spent time and effort colouring them in nicely and adding glitter foam stickers and Christmas stamps.  The glitter stickers are sadly out of stock but the Santa’s Workshop Stickers (£2.99) look an ideal alternative.

The self-inking stampers were excellent value at £2.99 for 10.  The festive red and green colours and designs really transform Christmas crafts.  My eldest made a card for Eddie the Elf using them.  Eddie must have liked it very much as he then brought a little present for my son through his elf door! 

The boys really liked building Santa’s Workshop; it looked really well made when they had finished adding all the extra details.  Priced at £3.95 for a pack of two so great for siblings to have one each to focus on.  Eddie the Elf later hid a treat inside each workshop because he was proud of their efforts.  Seasonal crafting with Yellow Moon is helping keep the magic of Christmas alive and is also handy for extra decorations to make your rooms look festive.

We even added some Christmas sparkle outside!

They have some fabulous bits to fill Christmas stockings, I personally like the sound of the Christmas Parachutists, if you have quite a few children you can soon fill the stockings up quite easily with multipack buys like that (£1.99 for four).  But the fun does not end there; you can add Christmas rings, tattoos, lollipops and cups or you can focus on filling it with small craft sets to keep them busy Christmas morning so you can get the turkey in the oven and start preparing the vegetables in relative peace.
