Welcome to Nurturestore’s day to host the Creative Christmas Countdown, where we’re going to let it snow!
I’m joining with some of my favourite kids bloggers to bring you an Advent of creative activities you can use with your children to have some fun this festive season. Each day until 24th December there’s a different idea to try. You can follow along on the interactive Advent calendar – there are some wonderful ideas there already, so do take a look. Today is my turn, and I’m going to show you one of my daughters’ favourite Christmas art and play ideas: making a model Christmas town.
