If you’re looking for some fun holiday activities with kids in the kitchen, local food blogger and author Philia Kelnhofer of sweetphi.com has got you covered:
1. Sugar Cookies (that actually hold their shape)
Sugar cookies (that actually hold their shape) - This recipe is great to make with kids of all ages. Younger kids can help add ingredients, and older kids can roll out and cut dough into fun shapes. Regardless of what you’re making, these sugar cookies actually hold their shape, so you’re not left with big blobs when you were trying to make a star or reindeer shape.
2. Graham Cracker Houses
Graham cracker houses - Making mini graham cracker houses is a fun activity for kids who are a little older, or even for adults! Get a bunch of fun toppings and the options are endless.
3. Christmas Tree Pinwheels
Christmas tree pinwheels - Take a break from all those sweets for these cheddar bacon ranch pinwheels, use green tortillas to make them extra festive!
4. Pizza With Kids
Pizza with kids - Pizza night is a favorite in our house. If you’re looking for a good recipe to make with kids, I’d highly recommend making this pizza recipe (it’s forgiving so if those little hands wobble or spill, it’ll still turn out great!) plus, the topping ideas are endless!
5. Hot Chocolate Mix
Hot chocolate mix - Hot cocoa season is definitely in full swing. Here is a recipe for how to make an incredible hot chocolate mix, and how to have a hot cocoa bar!
6. Food Gift Ideas
Food gift ideas - If you’re looking for something thoughtful to give that impossible to shop for someone or want to give something special, you can make and give a food gift!
Iced Bailey's Coffee
