Christmas chocolate bars

I wanted to tell you about the Christmas chocolate bars my children made over the weekend. We re-wrapped shop bought chocolate bars and decorated them to give out at Christmas. I think they are really fun and make sweet gifts for children to make and give.

Equipment needed to make Christmas chocolate bars:

First wrap your chocolate bar in foil.

    What a great idea! We love the Santa one. This activity could easily be adapted for younger children too.
