Christmas gift ideas for children

The ELSA Group put together a list of items that could be given as a ‘Christmas Survival Kit’.

I have made some labels which are editable. You can put whatever you want into your Christmas Survival kit. You can spend as little or as much as you like. I have put some Amazon links in this post if I think they are a good price. Obviously smarties, starburst can be bought cheaper at the supermarket and bath bombs could be made. Google for a recipe. They are really easy to make. If you purchase things from Amazon through these links I get a tiny bit of commission and it doesn’t cost you anymore. This helps me to develop new resources and maintain the website.
