Has any one any ideas? Have lots of ideas for older children but not for my little ones.
Can anyone help?

Oh, I need to know too! I'm ok with my 2.5 yo - we've painted snow men and xmas puds and glittered them all up and I've stuck them on the patio door windows! But for the 1 yr old I'm a bit stuck.

I'm considering sticking him in the high chair with a full bib on and painting his hand which I'm sure he'll find fascinating, and get him to make a hand print. Then you could glitter them up, stick some up as decorations, and maybe use one to make into a card for mummy for Xmas? that's all I've thought of so far tbh!!!

Reindeer from hand and foot prints. Foot print body and hand antlers alwys love this with little ones:thumbsup:

Hand print Christmas trees with finger print baubles

Snowmen - stick tissue paper scrunched up always looks lovely, you could do the same with robins/Santa etc

To make or to do?

My little one is currently sat in the middle of the tray playing with baubles tinsel and beads - transfering them between xmas wrapped boxes and gold plates.

Yesterday we made xmas shakers - using empty plastic jars he happily filled it with baubles , glitter , polystyrene snow , and once the lids were on we had fun playing along to xmas music.
