Wordless Wednesday: Creative Christmas Fun

I'm not much of a crafter, (as evidenced by the fact that it takes me about two years to knit a baby blanket) but I'm always on the hunt for ways to make gift giving a little more fun and creative - for both me and the kiddos. Starting way back about 10 years ago, when we gave everyone cookie jars with Steve's wonderful home cookies, we've always had a propensity for giving, shall we say, less than commercially popular gifts. Last year we gave the grown-up men our secret family pancake recipe, and this year we wanted to take it up a notch. (Making pancakes is a tradition handed down from Steve's dad, to Steve and now to Jonas.) Thanks to Pinterest, I've found some dandy ideas and thought I'd share some of favourites.


Fort Kits: Flat sheet, clothes pegs, rope, flashlight, glow sticks, etc.... all in a personalized pillow case.

Build Your Own Snowman Kits: hat, scarf, mittens, rocks, buttons, carrot

S'mores Kits: graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows, fondu skewer, tea light
Hot Chocolate Kits: hot chocolate, mini mashmallows, choco chips, peppermint

Cookie Mix in a Jar: Include layers of all the dry ingredients from your favourite cookie recipe.
Don't forget to add the recipe too!
