DIY gift: Fairy walnut presents

Keep the magic of Christmas going that little bit longer for the tiny tots in your life with this sparkly and sweet idea from Helen Bird over at Curly Birds. Hiding a present inside a walnut means a little effort for a big impact – these are the moments that stick in a child’s festive memories. Too cute not to share. Over to you Helen!

My blog is devoted to crafts for children and the art of play. The blog and small line of children’s play accessories are aptly named for my sweet, curly-haired twin girls. I put these sweet walnut presents into the bottom of my girls’ (and their cousins) stockings this year. They’re a little magic and ever so special.
