Let the Christmas countdown begin! Today is December 1st and I am looking forward to all things Christmas. When I think about special Christmas memories and traditions I have, baking cookies is right up there at the top of my list of favorites. Every year my mom would spend hours in the kitchen baking cookies, letting us lick the spoon and packaging up and delivering treats to neighbors and friends. This year I want to give the gift of memories and quality time together, so I’ve created this adorable Mrs. Claus Bakery Kit to deliver to friends.
While Santa and his elves are busy building toys and checking their list, I imagine Mrs. Claus is spreading holiday cheer with freshly baked cookies and delicious treats. Just like Mrs. Claus I want to help bring the joy to others through one of my favorite Christmas traditions, baking cookies. This cookie baking and decorating kit is so simple to put together and I hope that our friends will have fun creating memories baking together this Christmas season. Want to spread holiday cheer too? Here is what you will need to create your own Mrs. Claus Bakery Kit
What You Will Need:
- White Bakery Box
- Large Favor Tubes
- Cookie Mix
- Gingerbread Cookie
- White Bakery Hats
- White Apron
- Mrs. Claus Bakery Printable
I made cute little aprons and bakery hats for the little bakers with the white bakery hats and aprons from Oriental Trading. I love that you get a dozen of these for a great price, that way you can make several kits for your friends and neighbors. I simply ironed a gingerbread graphic from our gingerbread house decorating party onto the front of the apron. I made a polka dot bow for the hat and hot glued it on.
I bought a bunch of sprinkles and put them in the large favor tubes from Oriental Trading. I decided to stick with a colorful pink, red and aqua color scheme for this kit, but you could use any color of sprinkles that you like.
I added paper shred and red and white striped tissue paper to my white bakery box and then filled it with the cookie supplies. I included a gingerbread cookie mix, tubes of icing, the tubes of sprinkles, a gingerbread cookie cutter and candy cane spoons (for hot cocoa), the bakery hat and apron. I even included a few cute gingerbread cookies I found at the grocery store.
I downloaded and printed out the free Mrs. Claus Bakery sign. I cut it out and glued the sign to the top of the bakery box.
Finally, I wrapped the box with ribbon and added a cute “made with love” tag to deliver to our friends.
I hope that this Mrs. Claus Bakery Kit inspires you to create extraordinary memories with your kids this Christmas season too! What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
