Do you children love to make Christmas decorations? Do you want to keep them entertained for quarter of an hour while you get some of that Christmas To Do list done? This is the perfect idea.

Christmas decorations

My 5 year old daughter was sitting next to a pile of Christmas pipe cleaners and suddenly started messing about with them.

After a couple of minutes I looked up to see she had made a chain like a paper chain out of them. Genius! So much easier than using paper. Why did I never think of it before? this is so easy – all you have to do is twist them into a circle. I like the way she made this into a pattern of the colours. The best thing is young children can do this without any help.

We hung them in her bedroom and they have made it look very festive with very little work. At least now I know what to get her for Christmas: clearly she needs her own kids’ activity blog!
