When you know that someone has had a bad day or is experiencing something that would just make that person depressed or unhappy, then consider making care packages in the form of candy gift baskets. This idea can also be used for holidays, birthdays and other special occasions as you can customize the basket in any way that you want it to look. The basket can be made with any kind of candy that the person might enjoy, or you can coordinate colors for a special event, like black and orange for Halloween or pink and red for Valentine’s Day.
Before putting the basket together, you want to find the container. A basket with a handle works well so that you can easily carry the gift. Place a bit of paper at the base of the basket to hold the sticks that you can use for smaller candies. A candy basket is often made of larger pieces of candy instead of using a vase with smaller pieces. The larger items can be placed along the edges of the basket to provide support for the smaller items that you want to include.
When you place the candies in the basket, you want to secure them with a little bit of tape on the back or even a bit of glue that is easy to remove. If the weather is warm outside, you might want to consider using items that won’t melt. However, if you’re going to take the basket directly to the person and it will be inside a cool environment, then you could add some chocolate to the package. Full candy bars are ideal for a gift basket. Mix in a few smaller bars to close in the gaps between the larger bars. Even a few mints or lollipops could work to complete the basket. It’s not necessary to wrap the basket with any kind of plastic, but it does help to keep everything together. About 10 bars is usually sufficient when making a candy basket. Add a bow to the front or the top of the basket before delivering the sweet gift.

It’s summer time here in the Philippines and that means kids have lots of time to try different activities. One of the fun activities they can try is Pizza Making at Greenwich Pizza Making Camp.
The Pizza Making Camp is a pizza making activity wherein kids will have the chance to make their own pizza. They will just have to follow the instructions given to them.
Last February, I had the opportunity to try the Pizza Making at Greenwich, DV Soria in Cagayan de Oro. I felt like a kid but I tell you, it was so much fun.
We were provided an apron and a hair net. We were also asked to wash our hands first as cleanliness is essential in food making business. After that, we were provided with the ingredients for a Hawaiian Pizza: pineapple bits, ham squares, and two kinds of cheese, bell peppers, and the pizza sauce.
We were then instructed to put on the ingredients one at a time. First the sauce, the cheese and so on and so forth. I was really trying my best to come up with a very good pizza because prizes are given to those who can make a perfect pizza.
After a few minutes, I was very excited to check out the outcome of my pizza. Sad to say, when I opened the box, there was a smudge inside the pizza box and my pizza looks messy and I never did get the prize. Nevertheless, my pizza taste really, really good.
Don’t let your child miss out the best summer ever. For more inquiries about Pizza Making Camp visit Greenwich’s Facebook Page or may also follow @greenwichpizza on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
