15 Fun & Festive Crafts For Kids (and grown ups!)

Both James and Evelyn love crafts all year round, but there is something about Christmas time that seems to ramp up their excitement when the crafts come out. Maybe its the huge tree in the middle of our living room that they seem hell bent on decorating head to toe in handmade decorations, or maybe its just the tinsel and glitter making us all a little wild.

Either way, when Christmas comes round I love getting out the craft box and getting stuck into some festive crafts with the kids. So in case you guys are like us, or your kids love getting crafty too, I have compiled (with the help of some fabulous bloggers) a list of 20 fun and festive Christmas crats that everyone can get stuck into over the Christmas period.
