What’s it all about?
Christmas crackers – a.k.a. Christmas bon bons – are a fun, festive tradition around the world. They’re even more fun to make yourself, and your homemade treats are kinder to the planet than the shop bought varieties. You’ll win popularity points when you replace the bad jokes and useless plastic gizmos with tiny treasures your family and friends will love!
What will we cover?
You’ll learn how to construct Christmas bon bons using cracker snaps (who knew?) and everyday materials – empty loo-roll tubes, wrapping paper and twine. We’ll make crackers and tissue-paper crowns on the night and discuss ideas for other fun things to tuck inside (BYO tiny treasures if you have them).
