|Our treats for Santa and his reindeer's last year|
I had a quick look through the photos that we had from last Christmas to see what activities we did in 2011 and found a couple that we thought were fun and that we really enjoyed. Obviously last year I wasn't blogging, so I don't have any step by step photos on how to do these crafts, but they were sourced from Pinterest and other blogs. I have included the links with each activity in case you want to complete one of them during the next week.

I have spent the morning searching Pinterest and google for the Reindeer Noses printable that I used last year, but can not find it anywhere. If anyone knows who the clever person who made these is, please let me know so that I can update this post.
The mini plum puddings (made from chocolate royal biscuits, white chocolate, a jaffa and mint leaves) were all over the internet last year and a number of different pages had made them, heres one link.
The caramel tart reindeer's were delicious and we were able to use ingredients we had in the cupboard. From memory we used premade tarts, a tin of caramel, jaffas, pretzels, marshmallows and a drop of black writing icing.
I did all our Christmas shopping (19 adults and 11 childrens) and the wrapping on Monday night in the one night! I could not believe it! Miracles happen. All that is left to do is Tim's stocking and we are ready for the big day (minus Christmas Eve preparations). We cannot wait!
