A great crafty activity, which I found super easy (and super cheap) and is fun to get toddlers involved with, is homemade shakers. We are still playing with ours now, over a year after we made them.
As someone who started skiing in my mid twenties with a massive fear of heights, I think it's fair to say I've been a slow starter on the skiing front. We've been on ski holidays most years since I first gave it a go and I've always loved the amazing scenery, the apres ski and having an active holiday but this year, for the first time, I actually started to love the skiing. My husband, on the other hand, is a total snow boarding addict. He will throw himself down any slope and looks (annoyingly) good doing it. So for different reasons, we've always agreed that we wanted to give George the opportunity to learn to ski from a young age.
At the start of December Rob, George and I went to London for two nights to visit my middle sister, Charlie. Was it relaxing? No. Did we all come back exhausted? Yes. But was it worth it? Definitely
Last year we received some AMAZING homemade Christmas cards - handprint robins, a whole family of reindeer made up of family thumb prints, beautiful photo cards - I loved them! So much thought and effort winging it's way through the post to the Watson household. That creativity got me thinking...
