But anyone who goes to the effort of making candy is making it for someone special. It takes time and effort to get into the kitchen, find a great recipe and make your own. So if youve invested the time and effort in making candy for someone special, or for a number of special people, they know youve made it as a special gift. And it isnt hard to make if you choose the right recipe. Home made candy recipes arent hard to find, and its perfectly possible for a beginner to candy making to make some great looking and great tasting candies.
Using the kids artwork, paintings and drawings from throughout the year will both involve them and use up all of that paper you have lying around. Paintings and collages can easily be turned into cute cards. Even worksheets with their colouring and writing on it can be used. Including the kids in your cardmaking does need some planning, so gather your materials and tools ahead of time. There is no surer way of boring the kids by running around trying to find those scissors when they are ready to go.
Are all the candles secure and vertical? Are they well out of range of anything that could catch fire? Replace the candles as needed during the holidays. Use common sense and dont take risks. Never leave the room when the candles are lit - even for a minute. Christmas Tree Candles are not a 24/7 decoration so its best to light them periodically through the holidays when you know you will be on hand to enjoy them and you plan to stay. This might be a party, a family evening around the tree, or Christmas morning when you open presents.
