You *may* have spotted that we are a bit of a Christmas-loving website. We have added a good few Christmas resources in recent weeks. Today, we are giving you a Christmas bucket list. A list of things to do/spot/try in the run up to our favourite season.
Some of these are for you as parents, some for the family as a whole, and some, just because….
What is on your Christmas bucket list?
We have included all of the following on our Christmas bucket list – what would you add? Do tell us on Facebook or Twitter won’t you?

- Volunteer at a shelter,
- Cut out snowflakes, you could even draw a snowflake and THEN cut it out,
- Decorate a Christmas Tree, perhaps even our wonderful papercraft Christmas Tree to Decorate?
