Okay, Mums, Dads, Grandparents and nannies…here are some fun easy non pretentious festive arts and crafts to get you in the spirit for Christmas. Lots of the things can be picked up at Tiger, Poundland, Amazon etc, or even round the house! Happy creating…
Chop an apple in half and stab a fork in it, making it easier for your little ones to hold. Stamp the apple in brown paint and print onto white card. Once dry, add a white top, and some leaves and berries. This can be using glitter glue, pens, card, or even some pom poms! These are fab for cards, or evening festive bunting!

Get your little one to stamp on green hand prints on card, leaving them to dry before cutting out. Cutting the middle circle out of a paper plate, stick the hands around to make a leaf impression. Add some red berries using paint, pom poms, pens etc, and hang up with some pretty ribbon!
