Creative Merry Christmas

Michelle Shailer from Creative

Hi Neighbours! I hope the silly season isn't being too silly for you! Some have time some need time, either way DIY Christmas stuff can keep the kids busy, entertained (out of your hair) and help the fun and magic of Christmas.

Google searches will give you an array of ideas, projects, decorations and games. I found a couple of stuff.co.nz articles with some cool ideas I thought I would share.

- What to do with all those cards! See some ways to creatively display them here.
- Want to create your own paper baubles? Here are some great DIY ideas for that!
- There are 5 cute DIY ideas here.
- And who can forget Christmas Dough decorations - I remember them from school.
- Along with a wreath here are some more cool ideas.

- Even some festive colouring can be great to keep them entertained, decorate and give you some time, google images and many websites have great printable options here is a google search.

As adults often we are caught up in the stress and timelines of Christmas - remember the magic and help the next generation enjoy it, but hey don't forget to enjoy it yourself - that is what it's all about. :) I wish you all a very safe, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you in 2019!

(I'd love to hear/see you ideas/feedback in the comments!)

Upcoming Road Closure

James from Awapuni

FYI, there are signs notifying of an upcoming closure of the Longburn Rongotea Rd between No.1 Line & Kairanga from 25 Nov-06 Dec.

Thought I'd let everyone else know, so you can sort out alternate routes :)

Good morning all our lovely Manawatū neighbours,
A Manawatū teenager has become the first non-American to be crowned junior world duck-calling champion. Can you sound anything like a duck?
