This time of year, like the carol says, should be about comfort and joy. That's why we've not only created a range of delicious seasonal treats, but a variety of puzzles too, to help you have some festive fun and possibly win some prizes in the process.

Inside our Very Merry Parsnip Pie, you will find a cryptic crossword with festive themed clues, whilst our Brie & Winter Spiced Chutney Quiche contains a wintry wordsearch. You'll also be able to find a range of different festive decorations inside our packs of Pork & Cranberry Sausage Rolls and Brie & Cranberry Veggie Rolls, which are guaranteed to add a spot of Higgidy joy to your home during the holidays (just scroll down this page to see our step-by-step guides).

Simply complete the crossword or wordsearch puzzle, or cut out your chosen decorations, take a snap of the final product and send it to us at thekitchen@higgidy.co.uk or tag us via @higgidy on social. All snaps we receive will be entered into monthly prize draws (taking place each month from October-December) and nine lucky winners (three each month) will each receive a festive Higgidy hamper. Good luck!

Cracking Christmas Decs - Step by Step

Whilst our crosswords and wordsearches are self-explanatory, you may need a helping hand when it comes to creating our cut out decorations so here's a handy guide to each below:

Let's Go Crackers

This decoration is a mini cracker that can be popped on the tree, fireplace or just about anywhere to add a hint of Higgidy to your festive display. 

1. Simply cut out the cracker shape being careful to only cut on the hard white lines - not the dotted lines.

2. Once cut out, fold at the dotted edges and curve the cardboard round to form a cylindrical shape.

3. Ad a spot of glue to the tabs that can be found on the outer edge of the cracker and stick together.

 

Have Yourself An Inredibauble Time

Now this little bauble takes a little more patience to put together but trust us, it's worth the time!

1. Cut out all of the strips, using the hard white lines as a guide (you should end up with 8 strips).

2. Using a holepunch or scissors, cut out the tiny holes at the top and bottom of each strip.

3. Pop a split pin in each set of holes and fasten by bending the legs of the pin outwards. 

4. Slowly pull each strip out from its pile so that it begins to form a ball like shape (you might have to bend the strips slightly to create the spherical aspect). 

5. Once the bauble has formed, use a piece of ribbon or string to attach it to your Christmas tree. 

 

Let's Liven Up Our Table

Festive feasts call for slightly fancier table settings so put these name tags to good use and pop them on everyone's place settings.

1. Cut out the name tags using the hard white lines - not the dotted lines.

2. You should now have four name tags. Fold the tags in half using the dotted line as a guide.

3. Write your guests names on the tags and pop on the table!

 

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Add a touch of festive flair to the tree this winter with our patterned star decoration.

1. Simply cut out the star shape being careful to only cut along the hard white lines.

2. You should now have two star shapes. Turn them over to the non patterned side and add a good helping of glue, then stick them together.

3. Using a holepunch or scissors, cut out the tiny hole on one of the points of the star. 

4. Thread some string through the hole, tie a knot and then hang on the tree.

 

Nothing Crummy About This Gingerbread Man

Add a touch of festive flair to the tree this winter with our patterned gingerbread man decoration.

1. Simply cut out the gingerbread man shape being careful to only cut along the hard white lines.

2. You should now have two gingerbread man shapes. Turn them over to the non patterned side and add a good helping of glue, then stick them together.

3. Using a holepunch or scissors, cut out the tiny hole at the top of the gingerbread man's head.

4. Thread some string through the hole, tie a knot and then hang on the tree.

 

Deer-Lightful!

1. Simply cut out the reindeer shape being careful to only cut along the hard white lines.

2. You should now have two reindeer shapes. Turn them over to the non patterned side and add a good helping of glue, then stick them together.

3. Using a holepunch or scissors, cut out the tiny hole at the top of the reindeer's antlers.

4. Thread some string through the hole, tie a knot and then hang on the tree.
