Get crafting with your little ones | Weekend family fun

The Christmas spirit is all around us, there's this magic in the air and a special sparkle on children's eyes, and while millions of homes have already decorated their trees with glittering lights and lovely family ornaments, other families are just getting started this weekend and if you're looking for a fun activity to keep your little ones engaged and a creative way to decorate your windows or mantle you're going to love this cute and super easy Paper Chains DIY courtesy of Borastapeter.

Paper chains

To make this decoration you will need: Wallpaper (you can substitute wallpaper for cheerful giftwrap paper or use Kraft paper for a neutral look), scissors, a stapler or sticky tape.

  1. Cut strips of paper as wide and round as you want your paper chains to be. It can be nice to make several different chains of different sizes that you hang together – or you can mix big and small rings.

  2. Once you have cut all of your strips, take one strip and connect one end to the other with a few cm overlap, depending on how big you want the ring to be. This will make it stable.

  3. Use a stapler or tape to join the ends!

Little J and I are so excited to start making ours!
