Holiday Treats You Can Make and Eat
The best part about the holidays are the yummy treats you get to eat with the family but it is even better when the whole family gets together to create their own treats too! The most classic edible project of all for the holidays is a Gingerbread Candy Cottage Kit ! It is easy to put together and so much fun to decorate and display!
If you don’t want to do a typical gingerbread house, another great option would be a Gingerbread Train Kit! If you want to turn your holiday treat making into a party, the Cookie Party Kit is the way to go because it comes filled with aprons, treat bags, and Christmas themed cookie cutters so that everyone can get in on the fun!
Another great project is creating gumdrop ornaments! Just get a round Styrofoam ball, glue gun, ribbons, tooth picks and, of course, gumdrops in every color you can imagine! Simply place a drop of glue on the ball and place one end of the ribbon with a pin through the hot glue, then loop around and glue the other end of the ribbon on top. Then, set up the craft for the kids by placing tooth picks on the ball. The kids can then carefully put some gumdrops on each tooth pick until the ball is completely covered.
Lastly, another fun project is making edible Christmas trees out of ice cream cones! All you have to do is pile you ice cream cones as high as you want then add a few drops of green food coloring in white frosting then just spread the icing over the cones until they are covered. Then decorate each “tree” with yummy candies of your choice to make them look even more festive and realistic!
