Me and Tilly are quite crafty people (I don't mean the cunning and devious type of crafty, although sometimes Tilly can be crafty in both senses of the word!). I try to find crafts that are simple and easy to do so that we are able to do them together. I thought that I would share a very easy and Christmas decoration that me and Tilly enjoyed making.
Leave it for a while to allow it to dry, then decorate how you like. I have chosen to add stickers however if you don't have any stickers you can get your children to draw or colour in the lolly sticks. If you are feeling particularly artistic you could also use glitter
Once you have decorated your star, add a small amount of ribbon to the top of your star to allow your star to be hung on your Christmas tree. I have used Christmas curling ribbon but any ribbon, string or even wool you have at home would work.
Alternatively if you use 3 green lolly sticks and glue them into a triangle shape, you can make a Christmas tree.
Hopefully this has given you an idea to help keep your children entertained and in the run up to Christmas and help you get into the Christmas spirit.
