Christmas is a crazy busy time of year. Here are some helpful tips to help you out.

Make a fireplace out of cardboard boxes and paper. My kids would love this one as they alwasy complain we don’t have a fireplace for Santa to pop out of.



Use a hot glue gun to hang lights on bricks



Make your own advent calendar out of a muffin tin!



Package up homemade biscuits using a folded paper plate and some ribbon, it looks great!



Use a condiment bottle to ice biscuits, it’s much easier for kids and less messy for all



Print a photo of the gift recipient instead of writing a tag.



Easily make some Santa footprints using your shoes and some sugar.
