Day 11 ~ Christmas Cookies

 One of my favourite things about Christmas, is saying goodbye to the diet and indulging in some home made sweets!  This activity has endless opportunites but is basically about baking together!  Christmas is a great time to reach out to those around you, so how about packaging some of your baked goodies and spreading some Christmas cheer?

“Looking for something for my tummy

Something crumbly, something yummy

Something with chocolate, something thats sweet

Something so delicious to eat! “

 This clue card is the first of the next set.  This set will be available to download later in the series.

Anything to do with baking!
