Home-made foodie gifts

We have finally started on making Christmas gifts!  As far as Tiger is concerned, all his Christmas presents to others are hand-made.  Tiger started doing this at three years old, when he could actually make something himself (rather than claiming credit for things Mummy had made on his behalf).  Making things himself for others has encouraged him to be creative and resourceful, which I think is a more meaningful way for a child to show his appreciation of others in this festive season.

So off he went and spent an afternoon in the kitchen making Christmas biscuits:

Decorating the biscuits was a lot of fun:

Here are the close ups:


Pack a few into each bag, tie the ribbons, put some Christmas stickers on them and they are good to go!

This post is linked up to several blog hops, where you can visit to see what other homeschoolers have been busy with.  It is also linked up to the Carnival of Homeschooling (312 Edition).
