The holidays bring out all kinds of family traditions. From ugly sweater photos to cooking marshmallows by the fire. We have many holiday traditions that I grew up with and those that I have created with my own children. One tradition I remember as a child was decorating cookies. Not just decorating but rolling out the dough and taking turns picking out a cookie cutter to create a fun reindeer, Santa, or snowman shaped cookie.
I have carried on this tradition with my own children and we usually bake our cookies a few days before Christmas or Christmas Eve. If we do it any sooner the cookies won’t last for Santa. Since my boys are teenagers usually it is Honey and I doing the cookie baking. I recently saw the amazing Sugar Cookie flavored and had to pick it up to try. I always enjoy a cup of hot cocoa when we are baking our cookies and I love to added flavored creamer to give it a unique taste.
Opening up the jar the scent of cookies filled my nostrils. This is a perfect touch to my holiday tradition. This is just one of the yummy flavors that will be adorning your shelves in the coffee creamer isle. You can also try Peppermint Chocolate Truffle, White Chocolate Raspberry or Gingerbread Latte. Any of these would go great with your holiday traditions like the new one I created with my daughter, building a gingerbread house!
This year I’m trying to spend a little more time with my daughter doing one of her favorite activites…crafts! She loves to draw, paint, or do just about any craft. Inspired by our new International Delight flavor and holiday traditions we decided to build a Christmas tree using our International Delight bottle.
- International Delight Bottle (flavor is up to you)
- Battery operated light (small strand)
- Green Felt (3 rectangles)
- Decorations (your choice)
- Glue Gun
Cute the felt into one inch strips (long ways), then wrap around bottle securing with hot glue. Layer on top of each other to show the ridges of each tree layer. Glue battery pack to the back of the Christmas tree and wrap lights around tree. To secure my lights I glued each light in place. Add decorations, we used candy cane stickers found in the scrapbooking section and little flowers (which we glued on). We also found a cute star in the Christmas section and glued to the top to complete our tree. It looks really nice when lit up.
What are some of your holiday traditions?
