From Kathleen Purvis’ blog I’ll Bite, at obsbite.blogspot.com:
Decorating cookies with the kids is fun, for sure. It’s also messy, chaotic and sometimes a little frustrating. Most little kids just want to get straight to the frosting part and skip the mixing, cutting and baking parts.
When Betty Crocker sent around a roundup of holiday entertaining ideas, this project caught my eye. It’s cute, simple and just the thing for holiday parties. You can go the cookie mix route if you just want a fun, low-impact activity, or you could adapt it to your favorite homemade ingredients.
Put out the baked trees, a bunch of green frosting and a bowls of colorful candy and let the kids go to town. Even the big kids – the ones a few decades beyond 21 – would like this one.
