STEP 2: FAMILY VIDEO

 

This should be a 2 minute VIDEO of your family with their family friend in the kitchen happily baking for the holidays. Children should be helping.

 

Begin with everyone saying their name to camera one at a time.

Then video your family gleefully baking (not pretending to bake) and having fun (ignoring the camera).

In the video include lots of measuring, stirring, tasting the batter, laughing (don't be afraid to get messy!) and finally eating the fresh made goodies with sheer pride and delight! Eating should be fun and happy but never crude.
