If you are anything like me, things have just gotten away from you this Christmas! I normally send cards out, bake treats and generally have things to give to others! This year, a combination of work, having a toddler and being pregnant has meant that I’ve had no time to do any of these things (sorry friends and family). Lucky though, Pinterest saves the day with loads of little last minute gifts that can be made by the kids! I love the idea of giving Christmas ornaments to family and friends, as they bring them out each year and remember how little and precious our kids once were!
Here are a few of my favourites…
Salt dough hand print ornaments! Capture those tiny hands. Click on the link for the recipe!
Decorations made from pipe cleaners, beads and other odds and sodds..
Button Christmas Trees – cute as a button 🙂
Hand print Snowmen – in Australia we can only dream!
Scrabble ornaments just for Grandparents!
and my all time favourite…polystyrene sequined balls. This is something I made with my students each year. They take forever, but if you have kids old enough, you will appreciate this and relish the peace! (just make sure you have enough pins!)
With only 4 sleeps to go, hopefully some of these ideas will save the day for you!
