Christmas in London is a painting in itself. Department stores and restaurants drape themselves in tinsel, Christmas trees scatter across the streets, bright and extravagant lights hang from the trees and lampposts like diamond jewellery, and on some lucky Christmas Eves, when you take a peak and there is red sky at night, you'll see the wonderful shepherds' delight!
Known as being the most wonderful time of the year, families and friends unite to celebrate each other and have fun, whether that’s party games or stuffing your tummies with food and bubbles!
We've come up with some fun ideas that you can do from the comfort of your own home this festive season!

1: Make your own paper snowflake decorations!

Nostalgia knocks us off of our feet when we’re reminded of the childhood fun that paper snowflakes brought to us in our primary school classrooms! The fun was never knowing what shape would reveal itself to you after the random snipping of a folded paper triangle, but the unwrapping like a Christmas present always left you with a wonderful, unique snowflake.
All you need is a sheet of paper and a pair of scissors and you're good to go! Simply trim your sheet of paper to make a square. Fold the square piece of paper diagonally for a triangle and fold the triangle diagonally again, then for a final time repeat the folding and then you're set to start cutting the sides in any way you like! Once you're happy with the cuts you've made, unfold your paper and reveal your creation!

2: Send homemade Christmas cards!
