The December holidays – time for family, friends, good food, shopping and finding ways to entertain the kids. But there are ways to entertain the kids without putting them in front of a screen.

Why not get some Christmas decorations out of the way and entertain the little ones at the same time?

Here are a few crafts to keep the kids entertained whilst you tackle that ‘to do list’.

Note: for these activities, it’s probably a good idea to start saving your used Twinsaver toilet rolls.
