School friend Christmas gifts – At the end of every school year, my child decides he wants to create something for Christmas for his classmates… and he usually decides this less than one week before the end of the year. After multiple years of this happening, this year, I was way ahead of him and I had already searched Google and Pinterest and found a few ideas. I showed him some of the great Christmas craft ideas and luckily there were two ideas that he thought ‘worked’ as school friend Christmas gifts this year, so we set out to grab a few bits from our local shops and got our Christmas craft on.
