Editor’s note: The following is a guest post written by Annabel Karmel, the British children's chef and kiddie cookbook author. This week Annabel shares step-by-step instructions for holiday decorations the entire family can make, and eat, together.
The holidays are the perfect excuse to bring the family together and into the kitchen. Cookie baking is always a favorite activity, as kids love eating the tasty things they make, but there are only so many cookies a family can consume. Converting treats into home and tree decor is a great way to get even the youngest kids involved in holiday decorating. Tots as young as two can use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and crush candies for the colorful centers of our stained glass window cookies – edible decorations that taste as good as they look hanging on the tree!
