Today has been all about baking and crafts. The Christmas holidays are in full swing and we love it!. I love when Alessia breaks up from school - no school runs or super early mornings - bliss!

We spent the whole morning with the crafts out . We have the biggest craft cupboard known to man kind - it is huge!. Nila wanted to do some painting , it’s her favourite thing at the minute to do.

I set out some of the baker Ross crafts we had left over from last year and they got stuck in making some candle holders, Lessie chose the Christmas tree and Nila wanted to do the gingerbread house .

I let them get on with it as I think it is so important for kids to be creative and do things for themselves- even if they paint most of the table , or come out of ‘the lines’.

We did some Christmas pictures for the fridge and also for nanny and Grandad- which I need to remember to put in their Christmas gift parcel! - I am rubbish at remembering things like that!

The girls had snacks whilst I tidied up and set out the stuff to make biscuits , it’s a really easy biscuit recipe which I have on my blog :)

Baking is one of our favourite things to do - all seasons!. We did some festive biscuits with it being Xmas and got the cutters out - no dinosaurs this time . If you follow us on instagram then you would of seen last week we made gingerbread dinosaurs , Nila’s choice :)

We added gingerbread syrup and cinnamon to make them extra Christmassy and they tasted Amazing!

It’s been lovely today, a nice slow , no expectations kinda day - which was definitely needed :)
