Make the Holidays Memorable with Fun Crafts & Recipes

Are you looking for fun and healthy ways to entertain your kids during the holiday season? Here are some of our favorite recipes and activities to help you and your family make the most of this special time of year.

Sweet Treats!

The holiday season is a great reason to get creative in the kitchen with your kids – and to indulge that proverbial sweet tooth. Here are a couple of recipes you can try out with your little helpers:

An Organic Gingerbread House: Gingerbread houses are as fun to make as they are to eat. This recipe calls for organic substitutes for the usual sugary candies and ingredients. With healthy decorations like walnuts and dried cranberries, you can rest easy when it’s time to devour your creation.

Holiday Cookies: Get out your rolling pins and cookie cutters, you and you kids will love making these 13 cookie recipes. From citrus snowflakes to candy cane sticks, there are many creative options to enjoy at home and give as gifts.

(Friendly note: as with any recipe, we always recommend incorporating organic ingredients and healthy substitutes wherever possible.)

Festive Fun!

Arts and crafts are a great way to keep your child entertained during the winter season – leaving you with keepsakes to cherish for years to come.

We found this fun collection of Winter and Holiday Crafts & Games that will keep your kids creatively engaged for hours. The list includes snowmen made from recycled juice bottles, a winter sun catcher made from ice, and sugar cube igloos. The best part is that most incorporate household items, which saves you time, money and cuts down on waste.

Another fun project for kids is ornament making. Here are 22 creative ornament ideas that you and your kids and create together.
