Take part in our sustainable festive competition!
The Week Junior is on a mission to encourage families to ditch the plastic and glitter in favour of some simple handmade Christmas decorations. Our exciting challenge is designed to help you stamp out waste, save money and give kids something fun to do.

Get inspiration from some of our simple craft ideas that feature handy step-by-step guides below or create something completely unique - the main thing is you enjoy it!
