With Christmas just around the corner (I know, already?!), we’ve tried and tested some fun festive recipes to get your class into the Christmas spirit. Watch your class get creative (and a little messy) as they make these super-sweet treats for themselves, or as gifts for family and friends. As always, adult supervision is required for all recipes.
