Imaginary Friends, and a paper doily Christmas tree topper craft

It’s December – I’m feeling a tad frantic, but trying to remind myself that Christmas is not a season of endless to-do lists. It’s about a person whom God sent to earth to teach us what love truly is.

Here’s a short post on what we’ve been up to. As well as some crafty ideas on how to keep the kids happy during this rainy holiday season.

Imaginary Friends Afternoon Tea

Pan_Pacific_Imaginary Friends High Tea

When the weather is cold and rainy, tuck in to some comfort food. Vera and I had a date recently at Pan Pacific to savour their new Imaginary Friends afternoon tea. It features delicious creations inspired by characters from local author Melanie Lee’s book! (We especially liked the spiky durian puff and seaweed swiss roll!)

Available daily 3-5pm till 31 December, at Pacific Marketplace. $58 / 2 person (Kids below 6 dine for free!)

Melanie will be there to host book reading sessions on 6 and 20 December at 3pm, so pop in on those dates if you’d like to listen in!

Rainy day crafts

paper doilie angel tree topper

It’s been raining buckets around here, and sometimes it’s hard to keep the kids happy and occupied indoors. So I’ve been keeping an eye out for simple craft activities to do with the kids.

We made this angel Christmas tree topper based on an idea shared by Molly Moo Crafts. We just modified it by using paper doily – half a doily for the angel’s outfit and the other half for the wings. A simple but fun activity. (Plus it helps to prettify our tree!)

Here are other indoor crafts /games that you might enjoy too:

Do let us know if you try any of these! Have a lovely week ahead, friends! 🙂

    What a pretty angel! We are also making our own Christmas tree ornaments this year, as part of our advent calendar, and I’ve got an angel craft lined up there too. Maybe I’ll try to make yours as well on that day, if we have time. Thanks for sharing!
