Cosy Christmas crafting with the kids

There’s no better way of spending a chilly Sunday afternoon than with a bit of crafting with the kids. I am actually starting to find it quite relaxing, even though I am the enfant terrible of Christmas decoration creation.

We were challenged by Wynsors World Of Shoes to see how cosy and creative we could get by sending us an enormous box of crafting supplies and some lovely snuggly children’s slippers for Caitlin and Ieuan.

Ieuan chose some cute tigers whilst Caitlin was swayed by some booties with pompoms from their children’s slippers range.

Bracing ourselves against the incoming glitter of many hues, the Husband and I duly mucked in to create some Hobbis family Christmas decorations.  Why did we not have coloured pompoms when I was a child?

I do remember happily coating my hands in PVA glue in the school craft room, leaving it to set and then peeling it off like a second skin.  Hours of amusement, and probably a waste of Council glue funds.

Actually, it’s good to put the iPads down and crafting is a lot cheaper than going to the cinema, isn’t it?  Plus, if you wrap the kids up and keep their feet warm, you can get away with turning the heating down a bit.

I think I heard the phrase “get something on your feet” every day when I was growing up.  My parents were convinced walking around slipperless was a quick route to catching something nasty, like a chest cold or the Black Death.

And, as we all know, parents are always right, aren’t they?

*We were sent two pairs of slippers and a box of crafting supplies for the purpose of this post.  No pompoms were harmed in the creation of the wreath.

    The slippers are really cute and reveiving the craft box must be fun for the kids to get creative.
