The DIY Coaster project is a fun idea of creating art with only your fingers. It's really one of the simple Christmas activities for families to do together with young ones. You can use these coasters at your next family gathering or when you have friends over to protect any countertop or surface.
Pick up any kind of rope you want first. Then, all the processes you’ll have to do are repetitive.
- Start off by wrapping it around your finger.
- Basically you're going to loop over the top of your right to the top of your left.
- Start with your left finger always and just pull that loop up.
- After pulling that bottom, make sure to pull your kind of leftover remaining tail that you started off with.
- Finally, when you tighten everything up on the back, simply repeat the whole process.

If you're feeling stuck on where to start, no worries, we've got you covered. So, here are some materials that you might want:
- First and foremost get yourself a canvas notebook. We recommend the big one but if you want something a little more simplistic, the small one will do just fine.
- White pens look absolutely great on this kind of paper. Also, use washi tape, some accent colors, and glitter pens.
- You can use a polaroid gadget to take all of your digital pictures and actually bring them to life.
4) DIY Memphis Mugs
These are very customizable activities for Christmas. It is a really therapeutic time to spend with your loved ones during the holiday season. To personalize mugs, the first thing you need is acrylic paint markers. These are supposed to be able to paint on a bunch of different surfaces, including ceramics.
You can get inspired by the thousands of mug design ideas from Pinterest or try whatever you like to draw. For example, you can try easy Memphis design, retro patterns in the 90s or 80s, etc. After the designing process, let them all dry and put them all into the oven, and bake them according to the instructions on the packet for the markers.
About the markers: You definitely can't rub them off with your fingers, but if you scratch them, they will come off. So, if you want your mugs to be a little bit more secure, we would recommend using ceramic paint brushes.
Christmas Activities for Children

Balloon caterpillar is one of the funniest outdoor team-building activities you can do with your children.
