Have some fun with these crafty days in December! The big and very exciting Christmas leads to all sorts of fun crafting activities but there is still plenty of other crafty fun days to be had in December. These days aren’t specifically about crafts rather the important and fun celebrated days of December that can be used for crafting inspiration. We love days that are dedicated to special holidays and events that we can make crafts and fun activities for! Some of the days that we are really looking forward to include, Christmas (it’s a 2-month celebration for us), Games Day, and Monkey Day!
Making crafts with children gives the opportunity to talk about the special day, and adults to reflect on why the day is important. Or maybe it is just a day for celebrating something fun either way we don’t really need much of an excuse to have some crafty fun!
