Make your own Christmas tree
Who said Christmas trees need to be expensive? This holiday season, let your creative imaginations flow by making your own Christmas tree from everyday household items.

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without enjoying some delicious meals. Aside from the traditional glazed ham or roast turkey, there are tons of tasty Christmas recipes you can make with the kiddos. Cook up a storm with these fantastic Christmas treats!
Christmas Tree Rice Krispies
Mix a couple of marshmallow puffed rice treats in a bowl and then add a few drops of green food colouring. On a tray, place the rice crispies and shape them into triangles. Let your kids join in by adding sprinkles or candy ornaments. Use pretzel sticks as the tree’s trunk!
Chocolate Reindeer Cupcakes
Add a touch of magic to your holidays with this oh-so-yummy cupcake recipe! They’re perfect for getting little ones involved. All you need is a cupcake, chocolate spread, rice krispies, and red M&Ms! Just cover the top of the cupcake with chocolate spread, add red M&Ms for the reindeer’s nose, and use the rice crispies for the eyes!
Play Christmas Games
For an easy Christmas game, get the kids to guess what Santa’s put in the Christmas stocking! Fill a Christmas stocking with a whole range of different items (the funnier the better) and let your children guess what items might be in there only by feeling the stocking. You can use hard and easily distinguishable items like pinecones or pencils, and soft items such as Christmas toys to get the kids excited and challeged at the same time!
