2. Fold the rectangle in half lengthways.
This year I’m reusing some conversation starters that I used last year. Sometimes you need a bit of help to get some life into the party and other times it’s just a great time to promote reflection and unity around the table.
*’coz there had been complaints the previous week that they had not been included! – apparently it’s “just not Christmas without them” xo
**leftover from the recent princess party where we gave chocolate kisses and lolly frogs for the party favours. Speaking of Hershey’s kisses. If you like to go the extra mile – I did see some Christmas printables that you can stick on the bottom of a hershey’s kiss… over here.

*having one child in three yr old kinder and the other in 4 yr old kinder has it’s drawbacks! The concerts were adorable though and will admit to tears in eyes.

How creative do you get with your food at Christmas time?

We filled our mugs with some timtam balls for something new. I got nothing but thumbs up from my taste testers, but I still think that my chocolate truffles are even better. I’d recommend either recipe for a failsafe, ‘no-cook’ treat that the kids can pretty much do on their own.*
I purchased a beer with a red label to ‘match’ the reindeer, but you could purchase any drink you desired, non alcoholic or otherwise, remove the label and replace it with your own labels. I made the labels below in about 5 minutes using this awesome and free beer label site to go with the next batch. You just change the wording on their predesigned labels, et voila!
*when I say ‘pretty much’, i really mean that they could ‘easily’ do it themselves, unless like mine they didn’t want to get their fingers messy and really couldn’t be bothered, but were quite happy to partake in the eating once Mum had finished making them all!
In Grade 1 she made reindeer food for her friends, in Grade 2 she made reindeer noses and this year she made candy cane reindeers. We may have a theme…
While we’re on the topic of reindeers, how cute are these reindeer biscuits that someone brought to a Christmas party we were at last week?
The Christmas M&M’s can be purchased in the Christmas section (and not in the confectionary aisle) at most supermarkets.
What are you giving your kids teachers this year?
Do you do a bulk run of something to give to neighbours and friends at Christmas?
Are you sorted for Christmas or flying by the seat of your pants like me?
I may look organised, but it’s all smoke and mirrors. The beauty of all the things we do here at FGB is that they are easy peasy and require little effort for a big effect!
