Waffle and Pancake Makers

Bubble waffles are bang on trend right now and most people haven’t experienced them yet! How fab would it be to make pancakes and waffles (bubble or just regular) for desert. Pop some different toppings in bowls and encourage people to make their own deserts.

It’s the perfect time to get crafty!

Now’s the perfect time to get the kids involved in making personalised Christmas gifts for family and friends.  Why not collect pine cones, paint them and tie some ribbon on them – you can use them as gift tags. If creating your own art isn’t for you, then why not let them loose on some of these?
