Last week I wrote about relaxing and not stressing during this busy season. I hope that article resonated with some of you. This week I’d like to share a few quick ideas that can help make life easier for you. I’ve chosen a few food ideas that will give you the peace of knowing you are feeding your family well, plus saving time and money. Additionally, I’ve included a few simple ideas on keeping little ones busy whilst you cook, bake and create and turn your home into a Christmas Wonderland.
Christmas Recipes for Kids:
For these I headed to Kidspot.com.au where I found some great ideas that are super simple for the kiddies to make happen under your busy but watchful eye. I especially like the Tiny Teddy Santa Sleigh. That looks so cute and fun to create. I can just hear the giggles around your table, the sticky fingers and faces will make your baking all the more fun. The Christmas Angel Ice Creams look like fun too, although a little longer to enjoy (due to the icecream part) this is a great lesson in ‘delayed gratification’. Actually, watch for my article in the New Year on this subject, one I think you’ll all enjoy.
Make Gift Wrapping Fun:
If you’re anything like myself and many mother’s out there, Christmas Eve becomes a late night because we stay up so late wrapping all those last minute gifts. Or, perhaps all of them because you’ve left them to the last minute. Don’t worry, it happens to all of us.
