Make your own Christmas bonbon – the jokes will be funny, the colour won't run in the hats and you can involve the whole family in making them!
|. Quality tissue paper hats (see below) |
. Cardboard rolls from foil, baking paper or plastic wrap or loo paper for smaller ones
. Glossy paper or foil wrapping to put around the crackers
. Ribbon (use two or three colours together)
. Stars and other Christmas stickers, glitter
. Scissors, sticky tape or glue
. Funny jokes (this is the hardest part!)
. Bonbon snaps (available from craft stores)
. Small trinkets – suitable for each person eg: toy, spice satchet, flower seeds
Assembling your bonbons
. Put a folded hat, joke and trinket into each roll - let the kids decide. (you could personalise them)
. Cut paper about 2 times as long as each roll and wide enough to cover them completely, with some excess
. If using bonbon snaps, tape them to the outside of the roll. The middle of the snap should be in the middle of the roll, so a bit pokes out each end
. Place the roll in the centre of the paper, roll it up and tape down
. Tie ribbon at each end side and decorate with stickers and glitter
Making the hats
. Cut tissue paper into pieces about 60cm x 15cm ( make some bigger ones for big heads?)
. Tape the ends together securely
. Cut a zig zag pattern to make a crown-like top
. Decorate with stickers and glitter
