Seasonal things for kids

Hope you don't mind a non-food post.


As that time of year approaches, I thought I would share some resources for kids (because let’s be honest, children and quiet get along like nature and vacuums!)

This is quite a good free personalised video message from the man himself http://www.portablenorthpole.com/home (There is a charge on the iPad app, but it's free on the website)

The NSPCC do a nice letter from Santa for a suggested donation of £5 http://christmas.nspcc.org.uk/santa

(You can also get a free one here: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/deals/free-santa-letter-video


These singing and dancing reindeer that you can control appeal to small people (headphones recommended!) http://www.icq.com/greetings/cards/66/

Those of you who do Twitter, may be aware of @MooseAllain ; he has drawn an advent calendar to colour in here:

Mix up some washing powder with a bit of water to make a thick paste, it's great to clag on to a window to create a snow scene (sledges, snowman hats et cetera made out of card or foil stick well to it and you have lovely sparkling windows in the New Year when you scrape it off and wipe them down!)

NORAD Santa Tracker http://www.noradsanta.org/ has some good games and activities for the run up and of course watching his progress on Christmas Eve (especially if they need a bit of encouragement to go to bed as they can see how close he is getting!)

There's a winter scene made out of ice cream here, with other cooking ideas http://tyne-teas.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/cooking-with-kids.html

Right – that should be a start to buy some hush, feel free to share yours!



(It's more for grown-ups, but you might also enjoy my Christmas Song Quiz)
