Easy Christmas Cards to make with Children

It is no secret that I love to craft and it seems as though I am passing that love on to MIni and we are having lots of fun at the moment making, baking and crafting for Christmas.

We were inspired by Homemaker Magazine and Chicken and Custard for out latest make.  Super easy child frieldly Christmas cards.


Cereal box
Blamk cards/Card
Washi tape, we used red and green
Double sided tape or clue
Merry Christmas Stamp


I cut the cereal box to the height we wanted out trees and then Mini put strips on washi tape on to the back of the cereal packet in vertical strips.

We then measured the card and made marks every 3cm's.  Initially Mini tried to cut the card with scissors, but we found it easier with the guilotine (but I did supervise him).

He then stuck doublesided tape on the rear of the tree and stuck one (or two) to each of the cards.

He then stamped the front with a Happy Christmas Stamp.

We are entering this is the Money Supermarket Childs Chiltmas Card craft off

  5. Oooh they turned out pretty! Great idea to use washi tape. Mini did a great job!

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
