Homemade Holiday Baskets

Looking for the perfect gift? Well there’s nothing like a homemade gift basket. We’ve been making these at Seasons and they’re always well received. The basket contains homemade cookies, jam and mulling sachets plus two wrapped sparkly candles. We wrapped each delicious treat in cellophane and tied it with a ribbon. For the mulling sachets we printed the recipe on kraft paper and then glued it to card stock. You can wrap the finished basket in cellophane and tie it with ribbons!

Gingerbread House

For our last Creative Treats class, the students made Gingerbread Houses from scratch. We made the gingerbread and then they used patterns to cut out the shapes of their houses. We “glued” them together using royal icing and then decorated them using a variety of candies. It’s a great activity to do with your kids and a good way to boost self-esteem, as the finished product is quite impressive!
