At their fingertips
Lilly puts all the craft supplies within easy reach for Emma (six) and Frieda (three). ‘They’re free in what they make and how,’ she says. ‘Creativity needs mess!’
Mix decorations with lights and foliage

Use festive cookie cutters
Bake some seasonal shapes
Make salt dough from 140g flour, 140g salt and 112ml water, cut into shapes and put in the oven. ‘It’s great because you can re-use it,’ says Lilly. ‘It’s nice for the girls to see what they made the year before.’

– anything goes’
