Hi guys,

I hope you’re all well! 

Today I want to make three suggestions about how you can get into the Christmas/holiday spirit, even though we’re basically still in lockdown until at least 16th December. Wherever you end up during the winter break, I hope that these tips are useful!

Make some paper chains

Paper chains are a super simple craft that can help you ring in the season. Even though I have fine motor issues, I find threading the strips of paper really therapeutic (as long they’re big enough for me to manage, haha). I also really like this craft because you can make your chain using any design that you like. All you need is some paper, glue/tape, scissors and coloured pens/pencils! I’m pretty sure that the majority of people out there will know how to make them, but just type ‘paper chains’ into a search engine if you don’t.

Decorate a Christmas tree

Nowadays you can get artificial Christmas trees in almost every size and colour. 1ft, 3ft, 5ft. Green, Pink, Rainbow. The combinations are endless! I love how you can get tree decorations that reflect your personality too. I always find decorating a Christmas tree (of whatever size) a great way to get the festivities started.

Do some Winter baking 

One of my favourite things about this time of year is the flavours. Ginger, cinnamon, chocolate- I love it all. There are so many things that you can bake during this period. There’s gingerbread, Christmas cake, a Yule log… The list goes on and on. You could even get your family and friends involved and host a Virtual Festive Bake Off. You never know, you might have a Star Baker in your midst!

I know that these three ideas are very simple, but that’s the point! Anything that makes getting excited for the holiday season easier is a win in my mind (especially this year)! Let me know in the comments below if you attempt any of these activities!
