I had frozen some bowls of water and made plenty of ice cubes and the children went about making their own ice sculptures of the North pole.
They discovered that if you held the ice cubes in place for 12 seconds they froze together. This is a super cheap activity (free), loads of fun and very festive.
We recruited a couple of tree decorations and some of Charlie's animals.
There was a fair amount of sculpting, which wasn't too messy, as it is only water and had the added bonus for Charlie, of being edible.
I would love it if you could leave a comment. Please give it a go, I'm working on making it easier
