Wooden Santa Decoration For Kids
I recently wrote a blog post all about Santa and what to do when the kids stop believing in Father Christmas. No matter what age we or the kids are Santa will always be around at Christmas either visiting the kids or as part of our clothing or decorations.
Today we have a fun and simple Santa wooden slice tutorial and I’m sure it will go down a treat. It’s so fun to make and will look brilliant as a Christmas tree decoration. Enjoy.
