It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

With just 15 days to go, the excitement for Christmas is building. If your children need something calming, or you need five minutes peace, why not have a look at our Crafty Little Troopers page where you will find some great Christmas crafts.

We have activity sheets for making biscuits, salt dough decorations, Christmas cards, Christmas eve sacks and even eco-friendly wrapping paper. In total there are over 50 activities and you can find them all here.

Louise, founder of our charity said, “The lead up to Christmas with little ones is always hectic but especially so if you have a parent serving away from home. We put together our Crafty Little Troopers activities to help keep little hands busy while parents can have a well-deserved cup of tea. Also keeping the environment in mind, our Christmas eve sack is great way of recycling an old pillowcase and our wrapping paper can be recycled if you can keep the design glitter free.”

We love to see our little troopers crafty creations so if you post your pictures on social media, please use the hashtag #craftylittletroopers.

Also, if you are looking for inspiration for some last-minute Christmas gifts or stocking fillers, visit our Little Troopers shop. You’ll find everything from hoodies, t-shirts and military dressing up clothes to wristbands, special dog tags and our very collection of books. You can visit the Little Troopers shop here.

Louise adds “We hope some of these ideas will help our military families and want to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.”
