More Cheap Children's Christmas Gifts
“Children do learn what they live. Then they grow up to live what they’ve learned.” – Dorothy Nolte
Today’s children’s #ChristmasGift tips are based on some crafty ideas… Which won’t break the bank!
Here we go…
Tip 1. Create a ‘12 Months of Treats Jar’ and fill it with surprises and “treats” that they can choose throughout the following year. Perhaps a trip to their favourite park, a movie night with popcorn, a whole day of quality time… Get creative! You can simply reuse and decorate an old jam jar, or pick them up for less than a £1 at a local cheap shop.
Tip 2. Create a den or Christmas fort somewhere in the house. Find old bedding, pillows and fabrics from around the house and make a special fort for the kids to use.
Tip 3. A family ‘Escape Room’ or ‘Theme Park experience. All you need is some crafts, boxes, YouTube and a little imagination… Below are some videos you may find useful!

As you can see, all of these ideas are based around 1 of 2 things… Imagination and quality time with loved-ones! Neither of which have to cost a penny, but are so important for children’s growth and development.
