Making your own Yule logs is part of the fun of an old fashioned Christmas. Be careful that your children stay away from the coloring chemicals they can be harmful. Yule logs make a nice gift too just wrap them in Christmas wrapping paper. Only use newsprint not the shiny paper as it does not absorb as quickly
