Ho Ho Ho, Santa's Coming

If you're wanting to get the kids even more excited then log onto so Santa can send your child a personalised video message or on Christmas Eve log onto to track Santa making his deliveries around the world.

Hope you all have a magical Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Snow Galore...

Over the last few weeks Crafty Creatures has been to quite a few Christmas craft parties, here are some pictures from Hannah's 5th birthday party and from Tom's 7th birthday party. As no snow was in sight we took along some pretend snow, which appears infront of your very eyes. Just like magic. I think the parents enjoyed it as much as the children!

Here are a selection of the crafts which were made.

Dolphins & Fairies

Yes, I know it may seem like a strange combination for crafts, however they worked well when we attended Ciara and Niamh's 8th birthday party. An array of crafts from dolphin magnets, sitting fairies to very glittery wands were made. When it's your party the theme of the crafts is down to you, what could be more personal?

Gateshead Carers

In early December Crafty Creatures was luck yo take part in Gateshead Crossroads Carers Christmas Community Event. Christmas crafts to cover a wide age range were available for all to make, from spiraling snowmen to angel tree decorations. People from the local community in Highfield attended, along with schools in the area and of course carers. I was particularly excited for Crafty Creatures to take part in this event as in the past I have worked with people who have mental ill health and am aware of the work carers of all ages play in helping to keep people well, so it was lovely to be able to give something back to them.

Here is are few photos taken on the day.
