For this holiday project my brother in law, sister in law, husband, and I set things up for the kids to create small gifts they could give the family.
One of the things they helped makes cocoa filled ornaments with peppermint mini marshmallows. In hindsight the ornament needs a much larger opening at the top in order to get the cocoa and marshmallows back out of the space.
We made candied pecans in the oven.
Some of the pecans the kids helped us bag for gifts. We used the rest to make pretzel, rolo, pecan cookies.
