HOW TO:

Christmas crafts with the kids

 

To celebrate Christmas, we hosted a crafting workshop with the incredibly talented Ann-Marie from My Hong Kong ABC at our studio in Wong Chuk Hang. Little ones had the opportunity to make their own festive decorations and Christmas cards. We wanted to share all the tips and tricks directly from My Hong Kong ABC on how you can do these simple crafts at home as well!   


CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

These easy to make Christmas decorations will not only keep the little ones occupied but can also be a unique keepsake for your tree in years to come. 

1) Air-Dry Clay: This clever material requires no baking! Available in any of the toy shops in Wan Chai market on Tai Yuen Street or local stationers

2) Twine or Ribbon: Ikea's seasonal shop or Sham Shui Po 

3) Cutters: Any cookery shop like Twins Co. or I love Cake, both in Wan Chai. 

4) Bells: Local stationers

Step 1:

Roll out your air dry clay to about 4cm thick and use the cookie cutter to create your shape. 

Step 2:

Once you have your shape, create a hole at the top with a straw and thread your chosen twine. Use use stamps, marker pens and the bells to decorate your creation. 

Step 3:

Leave to dry for 2 - 3 hours until it has hardened. Hang on your tree or in your home to decorate the space!


EASY CHRISTMAS CARDS 

Always on the hunt for Christmas cards? This simple craft gives family and friends that personal touch having been made by one of your little ones. 

1) Paper of your choice: Any local stationers or recycled paper you can find that would be good for a card!

2) Washi Tape: You can find this decorative tape in Muji, Eslite Bookstores and Aeon Living Plaza

Step 1:

Choose your card and cut to shape / size for your little one. 

Step 2:

Cut strips of Washi Tape in varying lengths. Stick the strips of tape directly to the card in ascending size from long to short to resemble a Christmas tree! Stick a star to the top to finish.

Step 3:

Send in the post to all your loved ones or perhaps event Santa!
