Toilet Roll Xmas Crafts: Xmas Eve Scene

After the hit of my last toilet tube crafts I decided that Finlay and I would do some Xmas themed Toilet Tube Crafts. However, in true kid fashion Finlay deemed himself far too big to enjoy painting and left me holding the baby paintbrush. So my Kid made decorations, were in fact only briefly touched upon by 4 year old hands. I did however quite enjoy putting together this winter Xmas Eve scene that will be taking pride of place amongst the decorations come December! It does mean my photos are a bit poor and I didn’t take many, but it’s pretty self explanatory to make once you see the finished picture!

Today, I bring you the alternative Xmas calendars for the kids! Last year we bought Finlay his first luxury advent calendar and I was blown away. It really was amazing and a great price.

I have been a bit slow this year and I haven’t actually bought him one yet, hopefully this guide can help us all decide which ones to purchase. So here are my favourites for 2017!
