This year has been a strange one, and there are probably few people who would say their lives had not been changed in some way by the last few months. One thing that’s been notable is how we have tried to make the best with what we have – hands up who went baking mad this Spring?! Or tried mending clothes instead of throwing them out?

We’ve put together simple ideas as drop-in activities for some our exhibitions in the past that were open close to Christmas. You can download the templates & instructions we used for free from our website – just go to the links on the right-hand sidebar. Or just click the links below:
These are all just starting points to let your imagination (and whatever materials you have to hand) run free! The Xmas bauble, for example, can be made from scraps of wrapping paper.
