A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be offered some Hobbycraft Christmas Crafts to kick off my Christmas festivities. The girls and I were so excited to get crafty – not only because we love to make things, but also its a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.
One of the main things we were sent, was a Hobbycraft Advent Calendar set*. It comprises of a Christmas truck, complete with 24 little doors. As well as that, there were paints, glue and numbers to decorate and stick onto the advent calendar. This is such an awesome idea – making your own advent calendar and filling each little door with a gift of your choosing. Having two girls its a great way to only need one calendar, as I can place 2 treats in each. Sadly we didn’t get ours finished before December 1st so we’ll have to save it for next year!
As well as the advent calendar, we were sent two decoration kits. There were some felt owls and some pom pom reindeers. Both kits come with everything you need and while they definitely required some adult supervision, the kids loved making them together.
I would definitely recommend a look at the Hobbycraft site – they have some lovely Christmas stuff. Unfortunately the light is too rubbish in the house tonight to take pictures of our decorations but I’ll post pictures soon!
