    Default Homemade Bonbon/ Christmas cracker ideas?

    We are doing personalised Bonbons this year (you can buy the kits at Lincraft).

    I'm looking for ideas of what to put in them.
    So far I've come up with scratchies and a Lindt ball...

    I also want to replace the little joke in the bonbon with conversation starters for christmas table. I'm thinking of doing a Truth question and a Dare on each one... trying to think up 8 family-friendly truth and dare ideas? Suggestions?

    You can make the truths very family-friendly and happy happy... things like, "What is your favourite family memory?" or whatever.

    If the family are close, you can do something silly and personal... like, "Do the Aunty Karen did at Joe and Emma's wedding," (just make up random names) etc. lol.

    Mum did this last year. She bought mini bottle of Ralph Lauren aftershave for the men and the women got those things that you hang your handbag on so they don't go on the floor in restaurants. She also got the kids little toys (DS's one had a little train in and DDs had a Dora watch).

    Id just make them do silly things like
    Your challenge is to ...

    - Drink a glass of wine in 10 seconds
    - Shove 3 mince pies in your mouth at once
    - Stand on one leg and sing jingle bells
    - Hold your tongue and say '3 elephants sitting on a bridge'


    Or make the crackers into treasure hunt clues, hide bon bons around the garden and each one leads to another clue etc and have a large prize for everyone to share at the end.
    Like a big pinata full of chockys to smash open.

    I usually make my own but have been too lazy this year. They were pretty boring though-scratches (a couple if 'special' ones with a Lotto ticket in), choc's & little Christmas candles.

    All topped off with dh own jokes he did up...those I'm sure bought down the whole sophistication of my brilliant crackers!
