About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

Belated Advent day 15: Christmas crackers

Instead of buying crackers filled with cheap little odds and ends, we are making ours this year.

And as they tend to be pulled at dinner we are filling them with nice chocolates instead of cheap toys, and the children have cut their own tissue paper hats. We have the Humphrey's holiday joke book and have written our own jokes on paper.

We bought the snaps from ebay for 38p for 10. And printed the colour in cracker design onto thick card from online.

Next year I think I'd like to print out origami patterns to put in each one, and cut tissue paper squares, but that will keep for this year.
