Spread Cheer With Betty Crocker Cookies This Holiday Season #SpreadCheer




Jason and I have always been parents who stress the importance of giving to others throughout the year. We get so much joy from giving to others, and it's a lesson to our girls that giving is always better than receiving. In addition to the community outreach programs we are participating in this year, we also decided to Spread Cheer to one of our neighbors, with a little help from Betty Crocker. First, we crafted a little holiday snowman bucket with a few simple craft items we had laying around the house.


Then, we stocked up on Betty Crocker Cookies and other baking supplies to fill our basket.


Since you only need to add a few simple ingredients to the cookie mix (butter and an egg), I let the girls have free reign over the entire baking and decorating process.



Then, it was time to package up the treats in our snowman bucket. We dressed up the packaging with some adorable printable holiday tags from Betty Crocker.

And the girls set off to Spread Cheer to the neighbors with their yummy baked goods.

Not only did we include baked Betty Crocker Cookies, we put in some homemade hot cocoa mix, peppermint sticks, Christmas candies, and included a few extra pouches of Betty Crocker Cookie Mix so the neighbors could Spread Cheer to another neighbor, the mailman or a friend or relative!

    2. yes, and without leaving any colour, I couldn't even find the peanuts... which might mean what they put in it ain't really peanuts.......
