I'm thinking about having a holiday celebration in Dec. and inviting the parents. I need simple ideas for foods and activities (maybe 30 minutes total at the end of the day). I was thinking maybe making hot chocolate, Russian tea, some kind of cookies, and having a "gingerbread house" making station (using graham crackers and icing). I might also have a station to make bell necklaces/bracelets with jingle bells and pipe cleaners. I would want to let my kids do most of the cooking/preparing the day before/day of. I also have a lot of Hispanic kids. Are there traditional Hispanic foods for the holidays? Any other ideas?
