FUN FOR THE KIDS
Get the kids to help you make a Christmas countdown board. Paint and decorate a piece of timber. Use a chalkboard sticker or paint to make a panel for the numbers to be written in. Attach a hook or drill a hole into the top so you can tie a piece of chalk to the board and hang it up.
We also love Paula’s idea of tying a giant bow onto the kids’ bedroom door – make your own grown-up version with crepe paper or use strips of wrapping paper and a fabric bow in different, coordinating colours.
We love this novelty ribbon around the door from Reindeer & Castle.
