Holiday Activities

We offer Arts and Crafts sessions over the holidays as part of the Holiday Camp. Please enquire for more information and bookings. Here are some activities we have done with our children. Hope you get inspired for ideas for at home.

1- Jigsaw Puzzles

We got stuck into a puzzle this evening! A great activity for the calm before the storm that is the craziness of Christmas Day!

A thousand piece puzzle may have been a bit more of a challenge than we thought, but after a lot of patience, a few small breaks and a little MORE patience…we got this far until we gave up for the evening. But it was a great way to get everyone to work together as a team and listen to some Christmas music while we puzzled!

2- Board Games

Board Games! The classic board games will always be a great way to spend the day.

Our favourite is Scrabble. What’s yours?

3- DIYWreath

DIY Wreath. We made a wreath at home this year using things we found in our garden and old Christmas decorations! Its a fun activity to get stuck in.

Here’s a video on how I made mine and how it turned out! Try it yourself and post a picture and tag us so we can share it!

4- Gingerbread House

Building and decorating gingerbread houses is a fun activity to do with your family! Put on some Christmas music, make some hot chocolate, and grab your favourite sweets and chocolates to decorate amazing gingerbread houses!

5- ChristmasBake-off

It time for a Christmas Cookie Bake off! We love some healthy competition in the house around the festive season, (plus you get some delicious cookies by the end of it)

Our elf had made a mess and ate our cookies overnight!

6- Handmade ChristmasCards

Handmade Christmas cards are always a nice touch! Our kids love to make Christmas cards for their friends and family, it allows them to be creative, and share their creativity with the people around them.

We always keep our handmade Christmas cards to use as decorations in the following years!

7- Handmade Decorations

We love making our own decorations! It gives the opportunity to get involved and add their own style to their decorations. This year, we made paper snowflakes with paper.

Do you make any of your decorations? Is there anything you will be trying? Let us know.

1- Terrariums

We always encourage our kids to try new projects in the garden- this year its terrariums! We let the kids spend their time outside with their mini projects, being creative and also having the responsibility of looking after and maintaining their projects.

2- Growing vegetables

Tomato seeds! What a little miracle! The children still enjoy saving seeds to grow them. “Cut them, eat them but save some seeds!” We dried some on a sheet of paper (out of dad’s reach – he often bins them by accident!) once dry, they will be ready for potting!


1- Egg-stra special! Being creative at home allows our children to think out of the box. Make something with the few resources you have. It will be the start of young entrepreneurs!
