Being able to spend valuable time with the kids is one commodity we all wish we had more of, especially around Christmas. Sadly, sometimes finding fun, affordable and easy activities can be a challenge! So we’ve taken the hard work out by putting together a list of projects you can work on with the little ones over the festive period, all using things you can find around the house and complete in a few simple steps.
This year has been very different for us all and it’s also had us reminiscing about Christmas’ past. So for a bonus tip we’re asking you to take yourselves back to the days of sitting under the duvet cover, leafing through the Argos catalogue to get that precious Christmas list ready in time for Santa, circling your biggest dreams as you go. Those were the days eh?
Well you’ll be pleased to know that the newly revamped ‘Book of Dreams’ from Argos is available to pick up from your closest store or you can view and print off some of their suggestions online here. Why not share some of those treasurable moments with your own kids, while also making sure that the all-important letter to Santa is sorted using the handy template included in the book (also available online)?
Christmas may be a little different this year, but with lots of love, good food and quality family time, you can still sprinkle a little Christmas magic and make it a holiday to remember.
