Take the hassle out of Christmas Crafts with Little Button Diaries new Craft book

Laura Minter & Tia Williams have done it again, this time they are here to help those of us who want to craft with our children over the Christmas holidays but are not quite sure where to start.

GMC Publications / RRP £12.99 / Ages 4 - 8 

30 fun and festive projects are packed in this bumper craft book for families to enjoy this Christmas.

As you can tell from my copy, I've already ear-marked several crafts that I want us to do in the coming weeks, so be sure to keep an eye on my Instagram stories to see how we get on.

Little Button Diaries make a point of using household items to make these crafts, usually with clear step by step instructions and with photos so the children can see how they are getting on compared to the projects in the book.

I'm really pleased to see that the String Snowmen are in this book, as we've tried them before and it didn't quite work out, so we're going to try them again according to Laura and Tia's instructions.

The book completes the look by having templates at the back to create wonderful hand warms, stockings and much more.  A perfect book to get you all in the mood for Christmas.
