Dear Mummy, I had the most amazing delivery recently… all the way from the North Pole. I was sent a Christmas box filled with treats and supplies from Swizzels sweets. They set me a challenge to create my very own Christmas Eve plate for Santa with the contents inside the box.
I had great fun doing this Christmas craft activity and it kept me occupied for ages. It’s nice doing something that I can look back on for years to come and that I made independently. Too often my mummy steps in to try and help me with craft challenges, but I’m proud to say I did this all by myself.
My mummy has a sweet tooth and much prefers sweets over chocolate any day! My daddy also loves eating Swizzels Drumstick Squashies. So when they discovered my box of treats we nearly had a Mexican stand-off. Thankfully these Swizzels sweets are perfect for sharing! I love the large blue tub full of my sweet shop favourites and I can see us happily chewing on these during a Christmas film this December.
I couldn’t wait to get cracking on with the challenge and create my festive plate for Christmas Eve. I hope you agree it’s looking magical! I even included a magic carrot drawing (taking inspiration from the Swizzels branding) which can be chopped up and shared between the reindeers. Well, Christmas is for sharing after all.
Have you guys tried to make your own Christmas Eve plate yet? It’s really simple to do, all you need is a white ceramic plate and a set of ceramic or glass pens. It’s relatively mess free and a great way for kids to get creative this festival season. You don’t have to draw a carrot, you can draw what ever comes to you but as it’s Christmas I thought it would be silly not to!
For now my folks will be locking away the sweets for Christmas and I can’t wait to share my haul with Father Christmas, family and friends this festive season. Have you been good enough?
Which Swizzels Sweets are your favourite? Mines the Drumsticks and my folks love Parma Violets and the Drumstick Squashies! We might save the Love Hearts for Valentines Day…that’s if they last that long!
Love Bella x
