I love this time of year - the holiday spirit starts kicking in, and the fun times roll!!
I especially love doing it with kids...
I finally learned to let go of my 'slightly-over-controlling-make-it-picture-perfect-at-all-costs'
crafting self, and now have more fun seeing what the kids come up with in their own great creations. This week's picks were cookie baking/decorating and spider making.
I forgot how all-encompassing sugar cookie baking can be, especially when you add 4 oh-so-helpful kiddos to the mix :). Needless to say, our kitchen ended up very 'flour-full' ;)... and dinner ended up being cereal and toast :), but it was well worth it!!
Sarah's creation (she seriously placed each individual piece of decoration... including cutting each of the color sections of the candy corn to increase the artistic content...)
Sarah takes her creating VERY seriously (yes, tears were shed when Joshy got a hold of one of the 'prized' cookies...)
Joshy getting in on the action... he couldn't quite figure out how everyone was getting their candy corns to stick to the cookies, and rather than use the 'frosting glue', he instead tried to just dig the candy corns right into the cookie :)
Ben's whole goal was pretty much to stack as much frosting and candy as possible right in the middle of his cookie :)
