The kids did not have school on Tuesday due to a broken water pipe, so I took advantage of the time at home to make "gingerbread" trees. You actually use ice cream cones, not gingerbread, but you get the idea. It is a good idea to get the sugar cones though. Waffle cones are not even, so they do not sit straight. We also got green icing, gummy worms, gumdrops, sprinkles, and candy balls in the kids' favorite colors:
They got to work right away!
I think all of their trees looked great!
It was nice to have this unexpected day with them! We seem to be on the go almost every evening & weekend, so it was nice to just relax together & do a fun Christmas project!
