3 No Bake Christmas Recipes for Kids

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… the festive countdown has just begun, and we finally have an excuse to get the tree up and go Christmas crazy! If you haven’t started already, get up into the loft for those all-important decorations and get set for Christmas.

If life seems stressful or dreary, we must remember that Christmas is a time for family and friends. Take the time to embrace the Christmas break and remember to make memories that everyone will be able to look back on with joy.

Schools around the UK will be rehearsing their yearly nativity whilst parents are hastily finishing off last minute costumes. Our teachers and educators will spend the rest of this year keeping their students focused in class whilst adding a touch of Christmas creativity to their lessons. We’ve decided to give a little helping hand and would like to share 3 simple no bake recipes. Kids in the kitchen at Christmas is the perfect combination and is a great way to teach various skills whilst having fun at the same time. Use these festive recipes in your maths and English lessons and get your students to measure quantities or produce a method using keywords.

280ml Double Cream

1) Mix the custard and double cream in a bowl. Cover with cling film and place in a freezer for two hours.

Christmas Pudding Pops


Leftover Christmas pudding
12 ice cream sticks
