Prepare yourself, Prince George! Grandma Carole Middleton has a whole lot of homemade goodies in store for you for Christmas. 

The 60-year-old mother of Duchess Kate Middleton recently shared her favorite arts and crafts projects for the festive holiday season. It sounds like little George will be getting his hands dirty come December. 

"Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year," Middleton wrote in the latest issue of the U.K.'s Homemaker. "We're all busy planning festive parties and get-togethers, but taking time to choose and make those all-important festive touches is a must."

So, how does Mrs. Middleton put her own personal touch on such a hectic time of year? As a woman who has seen immense financial success as the creator of Party Pieces, a company dedicated to party decor, Middleton is a bonafide pro when it comes to celebrating a special occasion. Fortunately, Middleton graciously offered a list of options fit for any member of the family to enjoy. It looks like Prince William and Duchess Kate will have to roll up their sleeves and join in the fun. 


Among her favorites listed, Middleton has her heart set on a "Very Merry Cupcake Set" and "Paper-and-String Sew Your Own Christmas Garland," which she flagged is great for "young helpers to personalize."

As for a fancier collectible, a "Nutcracker Calendar" enables its creator to finish with a piece of jewelry. 

"This is such a brilliant twist. Each tiny draw is filled with a delicate charm that together make up a charm bracelet. Make sure you keep the trinket box for decoration—it's a beautiful keepsake," Middleton said.

With a brand new baby Princess Charlotte's first Christmas looming at Anmer Hall, next month is set to be an extra special time for the royal family. 

We just hope they don't forget a mop and broom!
