It might only be the middle of June, but Giada De Laurentiis already has Christmas on her mind.

The Food Network star posted a series of videos to her Insta story on Monday, sharing a behind-the-scenes look at filming her holiday special, set to air sometime later this year.

“We’re doing Christmas on set today!” De Laurentiis says during the video.

The 46-year-old then opens “Giada’s Holiday Handbook” which is filled with holiday baking recipes and ideas for creating gingerbread houses, s’mores popcorn, and kid-friendly culinary projects.

De Laurentiis also posted what looks like an inspiration board decorated with reindeer, Santa Claus cut-outs, sleds and poinsettias.

Six little girls, including De Laurentiis’ 9-year-old daughter Jade, then joined her on set and quickly got into the Christmas spirit. Donning red Santa hats and reindeer ears, the girls sang Jingle Bells and taste tested brown butter Rice Krispies treats.

Surely on a sugar buzz, Jade covered her face in green frosting while mom wasn’t looking.

When you leave kids alone with a bowl of frosting…. 😳 #XmasInJune #GiadasHolidayHandbook
