24 days of no mess Christmas Crafts

Advent is almost here, and with it the chance to do lots of fun festive crafts to get ready for Christmas! With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 24 days of no mess Christmas craft and activity ideas suitable for both home and school, that anyone can do! With the cold weather outside, spend some quality time together preparing your own Christmas crafts and decorations to make your home or Christmas display look absolutely splendid without getting glitter everywhere. Most of these ideas are low prep and low cost or free, with items you already have at home. Easy peasy and fun Christmas ideas for each day of Advent – or whenever you like!
