Christmas Crafts – Nana’s Snowmen Advents

Time to dig out Nana’s home made Christmas snowmen! Once they are filled and on the window sill, it will really feel like Christmas is on it’s way.

Nana has made one for every grandchild and now great grand child for years so I’m feeling very nostalgic!Made from a coffee/hot chocolate tin covered in cotton wool. A ball of scrunched up newspaper and cotton wool for the head and a hat from a yoghurt pot, a circle of card and an old sock. (This must be where I get it from!)Felt facial features and buttons to finish. This idea could be varied so much the possibilities are endless!

You then take 25 chocolates, tie on a piece of lametta and put them in the tin. Pull on a piece of lemetta every day until the tin is empty, then it’s Christmas!

What are your family Christmas traditions?
