5. Gingerbread House

Making a gingerbread house is a holiday tradition for many families. While store-bought houses are available, there's nothing quite like the satisfaction of making your own. With a little time and effort, anyone can create a beautiful and delicious gingerbread house.

To start, you'll need to gather some supplies. In addition to gingerbread dough, you'll need icing, candy, and other decorations. It's also helpful to have a template for the house, which you can find online or in a book. Once you have your supplies, it's time to get started.

Roll out the gingerbread dough on a flat surface and use the template to cut out the pieces for the walls and roof of the house. Be sure to cut out two of each piece so that the front and back of the house are identical. Carefully transfer the pieces to a baking sheet and bake according to the recipe instructions.

Once the gingerbread pieces are baked and cooled, it's time to assemble the house. Use icing to attach the walls and roof pieces together, being sure to align them carefully so that the house is symmetrical. Then decorate as desired with candy, icing, and other decorations. And that's it! With a little patience and creativity, you've made your very own gingerbread house.

7. Christmas tree sandwiches

These sandwiches are a fun and easy way to get kids involved in the Christmas spirit! Simply start with a rectangular loaf of bread, and use a Christmas tree cookie cutter to cut out a tree shape. 

Then, let your little ones fill their trees with their favorite sandwich toppings. Peanut butter and jelly is always a classic, but feel free to get creative with other fillings like cream cheese, Nutella, or even chicken salad. Once the trees are decorated, enjoy! 

Finally, use the sprinkles and M&M’s to decorate the ornaments however you like and stick the white Reese’s in the border of the Oreo to make the perfect Christmas decoration
