Day 2 and 3 Christmas Advent calendar

Day 2 was all about being kind. We fed the ducks and played generously with others at the play ground.

Day 3 was make biscuits and package them as presents.

Here is my easy biscuit recipe for stamping out shapes.

Easy vegan biscuits
150 grams vegan margarine
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups plain flour, plus extra for dusting bench and rolling
50 ml soy milk
Pinch salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped

Mix all ingredients together. Wrap mix in cling wrap and fridge for 10 to 20 mins to firm up.

Lightly flour bench. Roll out mix to about 5mm thickness and stamp out shapes. Bake on baking paper lined traus for around 10 minutes.  Cool completely before decorating.

Icing
360 gms icing mixture
3 tbsp soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together and colour as desired. Spread layer on biscuits and add and sugar decorations while icing is wet 🙂

When icing is completely set, wrap for gifts or store in an air tight container.

The easiest Advent calendar to spread kindness and joy

We made a super easy Advent calendar this year. So simple to make and the cherubs came up with kind acts and fun stuff to do together. Each paper envelope has the day, a picture and inside  a small note. Some example photos shows our activity 🙂

We stuck them to the wall with blue tac in the shape of a Christmas tree.

Maybe you have some free space on a wall? Hope you have a beautiful season. Xx

We only had cat stickers to put inside but they still worked well.
