We always made Reindeer Pud, (they are magical so they eat pudding) the kids make up a mix of flour, water, raisins (ie whatever you have lying round) and leave in a bowl on the hearth together with a beer or two for Father Christmas and a carrot for the reindeer to nibble.... you make reindeer prints with three fingers into flour and dot them around, give the carrots a chew to leave teeth marks and flush the pud down the loo (leaving a suitably dribbled and scuffed area around the posed bowl) Mum was Jewish, who knows where she got this but it is now Tradition....
Glitter (or those edible silver ball things)
Cola roller corollary....
...those edible silver ball things
I can see why they banned those magnetic bucky balls, then.
