Giveaway: Little Kitchen Pack


  1. My Mum always made a selection of three different types of Christmas biscuits and would put them in tins or plates with cellophane to give to teachers, neighbours and anyone that dropped in unexpectedly around Christmas time. This year I followed that tradition with my 3 year old son, it was so lovely and I look forward to continuing this activity year after year :)

    • Thanks for sharing Elizabeth. I’m a big fan of traditions especially at Christmas time. Biscuits sound like a good idea. They keep for a long time! :)

  2. In December, the kids and I make gingerbread men, stars, love hearts and trees. They stand on either side of me on their little chairs and help measure in the flour and crack the egg. They especially love decorating them with little silver balls and icing. We all get incredibly messy and sticky, but it’s fun!

    • It’s just not cooking if you don’t get messy and sticky is it? Thanks for the photo too. Will add it to the site asap.

  3. This year is my first year with my eldest daughter where I know that she can enjoy the family tradition of Christmas. My daughter, loves to help me cook and especially make sweet things like cupcakes and muffins. So I know that she will love to continue a little tradition I used to have. You see I used to love making rum balls myself and every Christmas I would take a little Tupperware pack of rum balls to the family Christmas day. So what a treat it is going to be this year to have my sweet little daughter help me roll the balls in the coconut and chocolate sprinkles after mixing the cocoa and cake but we will skip the rum

  4. LOVE the look of this! One of our traditions is making a Traditional Christmas Pudding with the children. It’s a group effort. These pictures capture how fun it was:

    • Oh boy Kelly. That sure does look like a lot of fun. Have I left my run a little too late to try your recipe? My little girl would LOVE making that. Beats mixing muffins with the spatula.

  5. I’m not sure it was something I enjoyed, but Amy definitely enjoyed making chocolate truffles with me. Roll one, roll another, eat them both and lick your hands.

  6. We started a tradition 2 years ago of making raspberry jam. We go to the berry farms and get the berries then spend hours in the kitchen stirring pots and sterilising jars. We end up with usually 12-15 pots of jam that we then put in some hampers for our neighbour’s Christmas presents and the rest we use throughout the year. Although i think this year we will need to make more – because our pots only lasted till June! My older daughters ages 6 and 7 love helping but we always find something for the toddlers to do as well – even if it’s stirring pretend pots on the floor! What a fun way to occupy the week between school and Christmas!

  7. We love to make “stained glass” biscuits to decorate our Christmas tree with. They are fun to make and look great on the tree. Although by the end of last Christmas there were lots of biscuits with bits nibbled off and quite a few teeth marks!!!

    Here is a photo of our daughter giving the project 2 thumbs up!

    • So cute Paula. I think this photo proves that these stained glass cookies are fun to make and yummy to nibble on!

  8. Thanks ladies for sharing your very special recipes. I would love to make them all and they all certainly look fun and delicious. Picking a winner was difficult but I have chosen Paula’s stained glass window cookies. The kids will just love them, and because the theme of my party this year is ‘Christmas Tree’, they will fit in perfectly.
