Keeping Busy Over Christmas with the little (and big) ones!

Christmas has been and gone, I know, I know, how dare I mention the word? I am still quite sad that the festivities have come to an end. I often think it is fun to do some crafts - or just simple doodling - over the Holidays which keeps the little ones in your life (the adults too!) pretty busy and content. 

This Christmas was a lot of fun spending it with all of my family, but sometimes it is difficult to choose a board game or party games which are appropriate for everyone as we all vary in age, so it was great to do some doodling and make up our own games by just using some paper and crayons! Lets be honest - we are all partial to a bit of doodling at any age, which is great as we could get the whole family involved in some 'Christmas Doodle Contests!'. Here are a few of our pictures below!

We were kindly supplied with a pack of crayons* from Maped  This set is the Color'peps Smoothy, which includes 12 crayons in all different colours..The watercolor crayons are chunky and really easy to grip onto. They are great quality and last really well, even when making some big scribbles! 

Did you play any games with the family over Christmas?

  1. Such a great post idea - as you say, board ames are great, but aren't suitable for everyone! We had an adult Christmas day, comprising of both Scrabble & Upwords (two games that I had real problems playing for a lot of my life because of my dyslexia & Mears-Irlen Syndrome). The lead up to Christmas was spent doing crafts with my niece, making Christmas decorations! Xx
