Sticky mincemeat bun wreath - A tear-and-share wreath that will be popular with children and adults alike. If you want to make the buns but not in a wreath shape, just bake them individually for the same amount of time.
We do this! Each day of December we have an activity to do. Essentially it's an advent calendar but we don't call it that. I put each little card in a miniature stocking. The stockings are hung along our bannister. The kids get to pull out the card each day. Most are things we do anyway, but it's a fun way to organize our holiday season.
