We make apricot balls, chocolate balls, white christmas, christmas shaped biscuits, fruit cakes in a muffin pan, vanilla cupcakes where we divide the mix, colour half red and half green and put red and green icing on the top. Think that's it lol.
For craft, we just made (at work, with 2-5 year olds) angels out of paper plates, paper doyleys (sp?), paper chains, salt dough decorations that they will paint today, pipe cleaner candy canes, hand and feet reindeer, a small tree decoration from paper and pipe cleaners, a centrepiece reindeer from a brick, and will make more this week and next week.

today we made trinket boxes as gifts for Nanna and Nanny..
I bought some cardboard boxes square and circle ones (little plain craft ones about the size as a jewellery box that earrings come in from a discount shop) covered them in craft glue and DS put sequins, little Pom poms, gem stones, tissue paper, ribbon, tinsel and stickers on them - they look really cute and have doubled as a personal gift from him
Another thing we did the other week was decorate cardboard letters "Ho Ho Ho", "Santa", "Believe" etc tear up wrapping paper and cover the letters in glue and keep overlapping it, sequins, paint, glitter, etc
We made a Christmas stocking, it came in a pack from Aldi but it would be simple to make at home without the kit.. It was 2 pieces of felt - see together on the edges, glue a strip of white felt on the top at front and back and then add sequins, tinsel etc
Cooking wise - Chocolate royal biscuits (the ones with marshmallows covered in chocolate) put them on a tray, melt white chocolate, drip it on top so it looks like custard/cream dripping over a pudding, while it's still soft add sliced mint leaves and a Jaffa or chopped lolly raspberries to make it look like holly
Sugar cookies that are iced and decorated with lollies are always good too make it Christmassy by using red/green food colouring and red/green lollies
That's all I've got for now
