She put the candy into cupcake liners to keep chaos at a minimum.
Each child had 8 different toppings, a bag with frosting, and a gingerbread house cookie.
Then the fun began. Surprisingly, it was a calm project. They were focused on piping frosting and eating candy. It also helped that they each had their own supplies.
This was L.’s finished product. Look at that pile of frosting!
The cookies fit perfectly into a quart sized Ziploc bag. We let L. eat what she could the morning after Christmas (after a nutritious breakfast). The rest was fed to the cat. She seemed to enjoy it.
