Just hearing the word Christmas treats brings a smile to my face. There’s just something magical about baking and making treats with kids during the holidays. Maybe it’s because I remember how excited I was as a kid. I specifically remember one night during the holidays, when I was a kid, that I got to make sugar cookies with really fun cookie cutters and colored frosting and, of course, and endless array of candy choices for decorations!
I was in heaven!!
Having these feelings as a child has made me want the same for my kids. I want my kids to feel the same way during the holidays. It’s not just about WHAT I decide to make or bake with them, it’s about BEING with them and enjoying them while they are young! Don’t let the holidays get so crazy and stressful, that you don’t make the time to create memories with your kids in the kitchen.
If your kids are already grown, invite the neighbor kids over or create some memories with your grandkids. It just might be the memory that they never forget! The best part is….I’ve rounded up 25 of the most simple, creative, and fun ideas on Pinterest! Enjoy! My kids are gonna love me this year!
