Hot chocolate kit- Supplies needed: Hot chocolate, candy canes and marshmallows. Get either jars or Ziploc bags to display the ingredients. Add some ribbon for a creative touch!

Coasters- Supplies needed: Wooden squares (you can purchase at any craft store), modge podge, painting sponge or large paintbrush, and pictures. Start by coating the wooden square in the modge podge. Print pictures of cute animals, prints, quotes, etc. (developed pictures won’t work). Add another coat of modge podge on top and lay flat to dry!

Peppermint scrub- Supplies needed: Jar, plain Epsom salt, red food coloring, and peppermint oil. Pour the Epsom salt in to two different bowls. Mix in peppermint oil to both bowls. In only one of the bowls, add the red food coloring. Layer the two different colors of Epsom salt (white, red, white, red) in the jar so it looks like a candy cane.
