What The Kids Have Been Up To So Far...

We made cute little baubles for the tree... And little button wreathes...
Folded paper stars...

I got them to make the christmas cards for the family....

They also made their own little snowman jars :) (excuse the icky state of the windows...these face the street, which is 3/4 dirt, so no matter how many times they get cleaned, they are back to this state within hours)

Today we are going to paint these guys

And make some Christmassy Chocolate balls (no rum LOL)

One pack of plain biscuits - crushed
2 tbsp cocoa
1/2 cup coconut
1 tin of condensed milk
Mix it all together, roll into balls and roll in coconut

(yeah, not really a recipe LOL I love this one for making with hot things, no waiting around. Just mix it up, get everything messy in one hit, and then they have to help with the clean up!)
What have you been up to during the holidays???
