Secret Christmas Food-ish Craft

You know how yesterday I was telling you I had at least 17 more presents to pull together for a bunch of really nice people?  Well, I had a food-gift in mind, which I then assigned my kids to pull together for me, complete with packaging, labels and ribbons.  I wasn’t sure how many could be made with the ingredients I had on hand, but told the kids to make as many as possible.  When I emerged from my writing stupor in the early afternoon yesterday, they had made– can you guess? — 17.

Not sure if that is really the number I need, but I was extremely tickled at the coincidence, and extremely grateful to the kids for pulling together 17 gifts for me.   They had fun doing it.  And since some of the gifts are designated as Sunday School teacher gifts, the kids will be able to give the gifts with more pride, knowing that they made them.

(Sorry, I can’t tell you what the gift is.   But I got the idea from someone on my blogroll recently!  Hunt if you wanna guess!)

  1. I’m not sure what _you_ made, but I followed one of the ideas from someone on your blog and my two preschoolers and I made Christmas ornaments from applesauce and cinnamon. They turned out GREAT, and smell so good. 🙂
