It’s that time of year again; can you believe? It seems to come round quicker every year! We love Christmas here at Tots100 and we like nothing more than getting our hand dirty and making things with the kids! So I’ve pulled together a few of my favourites from tots100 bloggers  for you to enjoy and would love for you to share your Christmas related posts and recipes with us in the linky at the end of the post!

I personally cannot stand mincemeat but Helen from The Crazy Kitchen has posted this recipe for Chocolate Mincemeat  and I really am tempted now to go off and try this! Something with chocolate in it really can’t be bad; can it?

Chocolate Mincemeat from The Crazy Kitchen – Yummy!

While we are on the subject of food Rebecca from Here Come the Girls has been making Snowman Cake Pops; I think these are a great idea for class mates as little Christmas gifts!

Miri from Here We Are Together has made this adorable Felt Stocking Decoration which your little ones will love to have a go at making! It is super easy and looks fab!

How about making your own wrapping paper? Easy and fun – DIY Wrapping Paper – Cookie Cutter Printing from Red Ted Art.

These Fluffy Christmas Trees from the Zing Zing Tree are super cute! My daughter is making one for her bedroom and one for my office desk this weekend.

These Tissue Paper Glimmers from Thinly Spread are really pretty and effective! I love how they look when hung in front of fairy lights!

I love these Shabby Chic Christmas Decorations from Mummy of Many Talents; older girls will love to make these I’m sure – I can just see a little tree in their bedrooms covered in shabby chic hearts!

How about a Christmas Eve Hamper - this is a really lovely idea and will definitely becoming a tradition in this household! I’ve always bought my kids pyjamas for Christmas but it makes so much more sense for then to have them to go to bed in on Christmas Eve!

Get your little ones busy making some Christmas cards for friends and family; these Reindeer Handprint Christmas Cards are perfect for toddlers to have a go at or there are 20 Card Making ideas for kids over at Red Ted Art!

How about making your very own advent calendar and including little tasks inside each stocking… that’s exactly what Jen from A Thrifty Mum has done and it looks fabulous!

To finish off I’ll leave you with 10 Tips on How to Have a Less Stressful Christmas (When you have kids) because everyone needs a stress free Christmas!
