Eco-Friendly Christmas Crafts for your Kids


It's December 2020. We've spent 9 months indoors, safe with our families. We have celebrated birthdays, festivals, weddings virtually… 

And the kids? They've adjusted to their lives indoors. E-learning, reading books and having us around for play and games. 

With Christmas holidays coming up, it's time for some craft that matches the magic, joy and excitement of the festivities but with a natural, organic twist! 

Here are 5 easy, eco-friendly & DIY crafts to do with your children to get them into the festive mood:
