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.
