Everyone always says the holiday season is the of giving. We spend an inordinate amount of time on this… From picking the perfect gift, to finding/ordering the perfect gift, to wrapping the perfect gift, to delivering the perfect gift.
And that’s just the gifts. Then there’s the food. Gotta pick the perfect selection of recipes for the big day, something everyone will enjoy, something that doesn’t take too long and can all be ready at the same time at the right temperature, etc, etc.
So when it comes time to doing “fun” things, even things with our kids, sometimes we’re just plain worn out. There aren’t enough hours in the day between all the normal activities and all the holiday prep, and it’s easy to skip any non-required labor-intensive holiday activities.
Like cookies. Sorry but toddlers flinging flour and dough everywhere = not my thing. Yeah, I know. I’m a horrible parent. But, five kids. And a baby that thinks he needs to be up for an hour during the night right now.
I’m learning to suck it up and do fun things that require messes. Because, five kids. And childhood memories.
We’re also learning, as a family, how to spread these those memories around to others, also. To #SpreadCheer. Which is one of the things that has been so instrumental for all of us this holiday season.
And Betty Crocker makes it so easy. She makes it fun to create something with your kids, and make memories and share them with others. Delicious memories.
Such adorbs printables, too. I think anyone would oogle a gift basket with that tag.
How will you #SpreadCheer?
I dare you to share a batch of cookies with someone you know who needs a little extra love this season. Spread some joy around to the ones who need it most.
Since Betty Crocker wants to #SpreadCheer in more ways than one, they’re also sponsoring a giveaway for $20 PayPal cash! So you can have a little extra this Christmas, too.
