Looking for a fun distraction for your little ones while they wait for Santa to arrive? Make some Christmas and Winter Flextangles! It’s a Christmas craft, a colouring project and a cool form of entertainment all in one.
“What is a Flextangle?”, you ask? A flextangle is a fun and fascinating homemade paper toy. It’s colourful and rather addictive to play with, and very easy to make!
If your kids love making folded paper crafts, they’ll love this project.
My friend Manja over at Hattifant has made a series of 5 Christmas and Winter Flextangles, and she’s been kind enough to give the one below to me so that I can share it with you!
