Need some winter activities inspirations for this holiday season? If you've got kids who love food and don't mind getting their hand messy, why not get them involved in the kitchen? Making holiday treats together is a great way for them to learn team work, useful cooking skills (they say start them young right?), and also a great way for bonding time.
These no-bake treats are easy to recreate at home, and they surely will make your kids' eyes light up in excitement!

2. Bagel Snowman
Even though it never snows in Hong Kong, we still love a good snowman themed breakfast. These bagel snowmen are super easy to make! Grab a few bagels, spread with cream cheese and top them with fun mixing. Blueberries or raisins are perfect to complete the little face of the snowman. You can also use pretzel sticks or pocky sticks for arms. Make it extra fun by adding an edible scarf with either a small piece of fruit leather or licorice!

3. Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Snowmen
There's nothing more festive than drinking a cuppa of hot chocolate with marshmallow! Your little ones can help decorate the marshmallow with cute snowman features. Opt for 75% dark chocolate instead of the regular milk chocolate if you prefer your hot chocolate less sweet.
