Christmas is the perfect time for getting creative as a family and we have a great selection of Christmas decorations, crafts and gifts that kids can make.
These nail varnish marbled coasters were inspired by some eggs that we marbled a couple of years ago. It is a great kids craft for older children. I did this with Mini who is ten and he loved it. In fact, he now wants to marble anything that isn’t tied down, so I am going to get some mugs.
This wonderful Five fabulous washi tape gift wrap ideas is brought to you by Gude one of my long-time friends from inside my computer as the boys like to call them or my online coven as the husbeast calls them.

I love finding ways to engage my boys with art and as they are getting older I am finding it harder and harder to make it about the process and not the outcome.

We first used microwave drying clay with our Christmas fingerprint decorations and we totally fell for it, so decided to give it a try for the microwave clay heart shaped ring dish. The microwave clay is much lighter weight that standard air drying clay, in fact is has almost no weight to it, but it is easier to work with for smaller children and it isnt as fibrous as standard air drying clay. A big bonus is it dried a beautiful bright white too.
