We're getting excited about Christmas here. We had the town Christmas lights switch on last week, and the Father Christmas parade at the weekend.
Betsy loves an Usborne book we have - the Big Book of Christmas Things to Make and Do. She's been leafing through it all year. She's picked out some projects for us.
First up are decorations made from bread (white bread specifically for some reason, it doesn't say why though). The kids cut them out and left them overnight to dry out. The next stage is painting them.
While we had the cutters out we made some biscuits. Freddie and Betsy helped with the mixing, I rolled it out, and Betsy cut the shapes. She decorated them with chocolate chips before they went into the oven.
