The festive season in 2020 was hard for a lot of families that had to spend time apart for the first time. However, it did bring out a new wave of DIY projects to keep the family entertained. But with so many options out there for you to choose from, which is right for you? To help you find the right one for you, we have compiled a list of fun DIY projects for you and the whole family.
Make Your Own Decorations
When looking to make the most of the festive season you can do no better than a DIY project. So why not get started making your own decorations. With so many DIY holiday decorations for you to choose from such as tree ornaments, snowflakes and even an upcycling stocking hanger for those without a fireplace, this is a great way to get the whole family together to make your own decorations for the festive period.
Get Creative In The Kitchen
Another way that you can bring the absolute best of DIY and the festive season together is to get creative in the kitchen. From Christmas cookies to amazing cakes, there are endless possibilities for festive cooking that you and your family are sure to love. In addition to this, cooking in the kitchen could be the perfect opportunity for you to do a practice run of your Christmas dinner. By making smaller little meals as a practice run, you can then begin to remove the stress of the dreaded Christmas dinner and make the most of some family time.
Write A Letter To A Santa
If you have younger children in the family that perhaps would not be as helpful in the kitchen, there are other DIY projects you can use to bring together the whole family. One of the most magical of all is getting them to write a letter to Santa Claus talking about what they would like for Christmas. This can then be sent to the north pole in time for Christmas, allowing them to be fully immersed in the magic and make the most out of the festive period. This is also a great way for the parents to gauge what their children want for Christmas, making the present buying process easier!
Make Your Own Christmas Cards
The final way that you can bring the absolute best of DIY into Christmas is by making your cards. With so many templates and even several pop out cards for that extra bit of Christmas cheer this is an amazing way of giving a personal gift to all your friends and family. This is also an amazing way for your younger children to get involved and give the perfect personalised gift to a grandparent or even a friend from school. This will only take a few moments and could end up saving yourself some money on the cards this year.
Regardless of whether you have experience in DIY or not, there are several amazing little DIY hacks as well as tips and tricks that can make for some festive fun for the whole family when it comes to enjoying the Christmas holidays this year.
