Holiday Fun With The Grandkids was sponsored by KING’S HAWAIIAN® but the opinions are all my own.
Including my grandkids in planning our holiday celebrations brings a whole new flavor to the process. They bring a fresh, and often hilarious, viewpoint and their innovative ideas make me open my eyes to their world. One of their favorite places to shop is Walmart. Besides getting all the things we need to make our favorite recipes and holiday crafts, we can also check out all the toys and games and begin our letters to Santa. So this year holiday fun started with a recent trip to Walmart!
Holiday Fun With The Grandkids
We decided to make one of my most requested recipes for this holiday season – Bread Pudding. With shopping list in hand, we began our hunt for the perfect ingredients. As we turned down the bread aisle, my grandson spotted the KING’S HAWAIIAN® display. And that’s when it was decided that we would make bread pudding early this year. So he grabbed his favorite bread (because it tastes sweet and like bread) and then we had to pick up the rest of our ingredients!
Getting in the kitchen with the grandkids is always fun during the holidays but we also love getting crafty this time of year. So I decided to introduce the kids to a new holiday craft activity — Turkey Apples! This year I let them pick out whatever they wanted to turn apples into turkeys. The fun part is that you never quite know what they will come up with! Weston immediately headed to the candy aisle and picked up a bag of gumdrops!
Once our grocery and craft shopping was finished we had to make a pit stop in the toy section because Christmas is just a few weeks away! Weston and Carrigan literally danced up and down the aisles with excitement. It’s fun to see them dream about what Santa will bring them this year and I was armed with a mini notebook in my purse to keep a list of what they wanted.
Armed with our ingredients and our wish lists, including our new secret ingredient, KING’S HAWAIIAN® bread, we headed home. Now we’re looking forward to sharing our holiday fun ideas with you over the next few weeks!
